For a bit of nostalgia, go to Štanjel Castle, overlooking the Vipava Valley. Fortified against Ottoman attacks in the 17th century, this town suffered great damage during World War II. Slowly renovated during the subsequent years, the town remains an important reminder of history, with its medieval castle, parish church, and garden, which overlooks the karst landscape below it.
