The Assumption Church...

On Candlemas, as the tradition wills, all the candles in the church are blessed ...


Church was erected by the Bucellenis and consecrated in 1606 by Tomaž Hren, Bishop of Ljubljana. It is known for its high altar, made of black marble. Until its closure in the 1950s it was decorated by paintings, made by Venetian painter Nicolo Grassi (1682-1748), author of three altar paintings: St. Mary's Assumption, Mary of Rosary with St. Dominic and Francis of Assisi and St. St. Anthony the Hermit with an antique martyr.
