In the rural arcadia of Labin’s village of Kranjci, painted with autumn colours, discover the legend of Greek gold buried beneath the Romanesque church of St. Florentius. According to the local legend, the church was built by the Greeks during the Byzantine times. They were extremely wealthy, but a seven-year draught followed and because of hunger they had to move. They packed their small chariot with gold. Since the gold was too heavy, they buried a part of it in a cauldron around St. Florentius’ church with a secret vow. They’ve never returned for the gold, and the vow remains a secret. The church was erected in the mid-6th century on the hillside at the foot of the village and a valuable altar with altar panels and braided ornamentation is preserved inside. St. Florentius Day is celebrated on 27 October, and a festive mass is served in the church on the last Saturday in October.
Distance: 3 km from Labin, on the road from the Old Town to the cemetery of St. John and Koromačno.
Trail length: 20 minutes from the village of Kranjci.
