MEDITERRANEAN COOKING CLASS

MEDITERRANEAN COOKING CLASSES AT THE SPACIO MATIKA TAVERN

ABOUT ROVINJ'S SPACIO

The spacio is actually a localised version of a tavern or wine cellar and is another peculiarity of Rovinj which helps shape the town’s identity and its people.

It is the place where the people of Rovinj, in their stone houses, keep, taste and sell wine, but it is also a place for socialising, eating, playing briškula and trešeta, singing and entertainment. One such authentic preserved spàcio, owned by Roman Matika is at number 35 in Švalba Street, and it became an integral part of the Eco-museum Batana (www.batana.org) in 2006 and since then there have been many musical, culinary and other fun events organised inside by members of the Eco-museum.
