Valun is a small fishing village that is located between two beautiful beaches. The village is famous for the discovery of the Valun tablet in the church of St. Mark at the local cemetery. The plate represents the first glagolitic inscription ever found and dates to the ninth century. But apart from that, this picturesque little town is also famous for its gastronomic seafood specialties, so in several restaurants (Mamalu, Na moru, San Marco, Tos Juna) you can indulge your senses. We also recommend you try the other specialties of the region, such as prosciutto, cheese, wine and dried figs.
