The Glagolitic Alley is 7 km long and leads from Roč to Hum. It comprises 11 commemorative headstones representing the development and Croatian roots of the Glagolitic script, especially in Istria.
It starts with “The column of the Chakavian gathering”, erected in 1977. The commemorative headstones are lying along the road all the way to Hum, the last monument being the town gates.
The ceremonial doors of Hum
The gates are made of copper, with two wings which are very heavy and ornamented with twelve medallions with scenes from everyday village life, with ox-horn shaped handles and the door-knockers with welcoming words inscribed in them.
