  • Beautiful and fascinating church, in the Secessionist (art nouveau) style. Knowledgeable guide shared stories about the hardships faced by the soldiers and their yearning for peace. The final 5km of the drive from Tolmin is on a single track dirt road, with steep drops. The walk from the car park to the church is around 800m along a steep but well surfaced path. 4€ entry.
  • Very impressive place. Great view over the valley too. Even though you need some strong nerves to get there by car.
