The Valun tablet is an 11th-century bilingual (Old Croatian and Latin) and digraphic (Glagolitic and Latin) tablet, originally serving the role of a gravestone, found at the graveyard in Valun on the island of Cres. It records that under the tablet three generations of one 11th-century Valun family rest in peace: the grandmother, her son and grandson (named Teha, Bratohna and Juna). Today, the Valun tablet is embedded in the wall of Saint Mary in Valun. Its bilinguality is important evidence of the coexistence of two ethnic and linguistic elements: old Romance and newly arrived Croatian.

The town itself is very nice and definitely worth a visit.

Valun is the most beautiful place on the island. Even though the competition is really hard with beautiful places like Lubenice, Beli, Cres,..., Valun is the perfect place for recharging batteries and finding the peace.

Valun is a beautifully quiet tiny port with several nice restaurants, very little parking, and a great claim to fame.

Valun is romantic village with 60 inhabitants. During each summer season village has 200 or even more people, tourists, day visitors and inhabitants. Many tourists are pushing their cars as far to the village as possible. More disciplined leave their car at parking and walk down for 10 minutes. It is not kind to force people to pay for the parking far away and have many exceptions who spoil really romantic village with their ego and cars.
You can rent an apartment or house and have your summer rest there in romantic setting with several nice beaches. You can eat in some local inns. Attractions are mainly far away (Cres, Osor, Lubenice). You can find just an old stone plaque, interesting more or less for historians. It is in the church of St. Marc. We all need translation from Latin and from old Croatian letters (glagolica) about some people from 11. century. On Trip advisor map the position of the tablet is wrong, west of the village. On Wiki you will read that tablet is in the church of St. Mary. Complete mess of information.
