The port in the Savudrija (Croatia) encompasses a complex consisting of different structures, some of which are visible along the shoreline, particularly in the southern section of the small bay. This terrace that was more protruding in ancient times hides a series of wall formations hypothetically attributable to substructure works. Furthermore, excavations have been carried out in correspondence of the breakwater and inner pier. The aim was to evaluate the height of the jetty and the depth of the local bedrock, to highlight the building steps and to define the time of construction and the chronological range of use. In addition, the researches have been aimed to contextualize this significant harbour (40 000 mq [Sq m/m2]) in the port hierarchy of the Istrian coastal landscape. The data, allow us to speculate about the ancient coastal landscape during the Roman Age, the settlement patterns and the relationship between this port and its hinterland.
