Istria abecedary: L is for Lavanda



Lavanda is lavender, which grows abundantly in Istria.

L is also for Labin, one of Istria's most charming hilltop towns.

L is also for Loža. 

The Italian word is loggia, a covered gallery similar to a veranda or porch. This is a typical architectural feature in many towns and villages across Istria which dates back to Venetian times. You can see more examples in a previous post.
