ChurchEdit

 
Archangel Gabriel Church

The church on a small hill above the settlement is dedicated to Archangel Gabriel and belongs to the Parish of Stara Loka.[3] It offers good views of the surrounding Škofja Loka Hills and part of the Kamnik Alps.[4] The church dates from the late 15th century and was destroyed by the Partisans in 1945. It was reconstructed in 1994 and reconsecrated in 1995.[5]
