Sights in Dobrinj

[23/31] Traditional measures

 


Stone steps lead from Placa to Jardin. Next to the steps, you will surely notice two ‘openings’ and a stone figure that will remind you of a horse. And you are right. It is a horse’s head that is in fact a bearing support for the parts of the building. We do not know whose balcony or ‘balatura’ was decorated by this horse’s head, but the oral legend says that, during the Venetian administration, it used to serve as a measure of length (‘lakat’ or 63.5 cm). The two ‘openings’, as we have previously called them, are in fact traditional measures of wheat and oil, which were used to pay taxes during and after the Venetian administration.
