History & culture
This part of Istria has a very rich history. Many peoples migrated, relinquished power, changed regimes, traded and waged wars. One of the oldest buildings in Izola is the Manzioli Palace, which stands in the Manzioli Square. The palace was erected in 1470 and it is a typical example of a bourgeois house in the Gothic style typical of Venice. The most visible church in Izola is the Church of St. Maur, which stands at the top of the medieval island and gives the town its characteristic silhouette. The original church was built in 1356 and was smaller. The present church was erected in 1547 but it has been reconstructed significantly several times.
The guests of the marina Izola can enjoy all its comforts: large piers, green spaces, service areas, parking lots and garages, agencies selling new and used boats, and renting vessels (charter). In the immediate vicinity there are tennis courts, an outdoor swimming pool, a commercial centre, a bar, a casino, restaurants and a shop with nautical equipment.
