cultural heritage

Cultural heritage
The cultural heritage of the Vipava valley is very rich. There are numerous sacral monuments and sites and, the majority of them are churches that were being built from the Gothic period on. Nevertheless, the Baroque period had the most profound impact on them. Besides the varied and valuable interior equipment inside the churches, they also represent a typical feature of the countryside.










Architectural and technical monuments
Besides the typical Vipava houses, shrines, small chapels and features that were chiselled in stone by the local craftsmen are here well preserved. Technical monuments are conected to the water, whether to the Hubelj River, the Vipava River or to the Lokavšček River. The iron and copper foundries in the upper stream of the Hubelj River, which were renowned in their heyday in the 16th and 17th century, are today well preserved and renovated. Later on, several mills and sawmils, a paper mill, a brewery, a pasta factory and many more were founded on the Hubelj River and the Lokavšček River. Moreover, mills and sawmills were also operating on the Močilnik River and on the Vipava River.
