ACI Pomer Pula
A Peaceful Bay
The village of Pomer, although only 8 km away from Pula and located in the south-eastern part of the most southern part of Istria, appears as if it lives on the other end of the world. A calm bay, deeply indented into the sea, edged by a pine forest, by macchia, dense evergreen underbrush, and by green fields, sends out a fragrance of peace. One part of this bay was once a large fish, oysters and mussels farm.
Pomer is a small fishing village dominated by a church on the main village square. During summer concerts are held on this very square. Interesting relics of some 15th and 16th century saints are kept by the village church of St. Mary. Of the sacral historical monuments, let's also mention the church of St. Flora, dating from the Byzantine period.
The surrounding area of Pomer is a very calm and peaceful one, suitable for walking or cycling or maybe even for a visit to one of the many fish restaurants serving the best fresh fish and seafood dishes.
The whole surroundings of Pula are large sites of the Roman remains. There is no bay where remains of some Roman villa rustica, or of an agricultural farm, of an olive, fish and wool processing factory, or of a wine production could be found ...The same refers to the village of Pomer located in the middle of a "Roman archaeological site", and, therefore, quite probable a very old village, since Roman and early Christian graves as well as remains of the Roman thermae have been found nearby.
The remains of a villa rustica, located just by the antic settlement, can be seen within the ACI Marina Pomer and form its integral part.
