Fort Forno is a coastal fortress located in Barbariga, which was built by the Austrian Navy in 1904 to protect its main port. The fort is classified as a coastal armoured fortress.
It was built of concrete in the form of a ring. Over time, the fortress has collapsed, but it is evident that it was surrounded by high stonewalls and loopholes. Besides history lovers, architecture enthusiasts will also be catered for since the hill on which it is located, offers breath-taking views over Rovinj, Barbariga, Fažana and Pula.
