A legend says that the inhabitants of Labinci used to go to Motovun on horseback every Sunday to pick up a priest to have him serve Sunday mass in their church. On their way back to Motovun they would, as compensation, clean up the Motovun Square. During the history both villages used to be under the jurisdiction of Motovun and later Viinada. Today, numerous showrooms can be found in their suburbs which came to represent a modern industrial zone which will soon include even a prestigious culinary school.
