Church of St. John the Baptist
The church of St. John the Baptist retained its original baroque appearance thanks to the French architect Le Terrier de Manetota. He is credited with building a unique two-storey building next to the church. The monastery, which is located within the church, is now abandoned. However it had a very interesting history. The monastery was first owned by some bishops who then donated it to a wealthy family. After them, the monastery was abandoned, but once again fell in the possession of Counts Grisoni of Kopar, who left the monastery to the friars after certain tragic family events. Until 1948 it was led by the Benedictines, after which it became a workhouse and a nursing home. Today it is no longer in operation.
