From 1903 until 1938 it was the surgery house of the island run by the doctor Otto Lenz who lived with the family in the building. This beautiful building is the only fully preserved building on the island built in the Art Nouveau style. (from Smrikve)

"This was the largest Roman residential complex in Istria built in the 1st century AD. The building started during the 1st century BC. At the time Pula, Fazana, Porec, Labin and Medulin were the towns and villages where several people linked to the Emperor’s family lived, and the beauty of this villa was at the Emperor’s level.
The assumptions are that the owner of this villa could have been the Roman Consul Lecanio from Fazana, or the family of the Emperor Augustus and his successors Emperor Tiberio and Emperor Claudio, etc." (from Srimkve)
