Oddly enough, it appears not to have been a walled town, or even a defended strongpoint, as its claim to fame is in having a reliable fresh-water spring. So reliable, that it was used as the water-source for the large Roman villa at Zelena laguna, supplied via an aquaduct.

The remains of this villa are still visable today, and it has to be presumed that a ‘grand villa’ had a local infrastructure to call on for the supply of food and labour.

As the road to the village was officially made up in 1905, it would seem that this was a place passed by for much of its time, with livelihoods dependant on fishing, agriculture, harvesting the sea-salt and quarrying the local limestone, overseen by the lord of the manor, the Borisi family from their castle.

Camp Puntica is located near the picturesque fishing village of Funtana. This small camp is located by the sea and by the beautiful 300 meters long rocky beach. It is encircled with pine trees, which gives great shade when the sun gets too hot. With the camp facilities just behind the beach area, all requirements are immediately to hand.
