Church of St. Martin

The archparochial Church of St. Martin is one of the few churches in Slovenia that is basically Roman but is, in addition to the Roman architecture, denoted also by gothic, baroque and modern styles.

The main nave with tower is from the pre-Roman era. During the Gothic era, it received two lower and shorter naves, and in the Baroque era each side of the presbytery received two chapels with domes on top.
All altars in the church are from the Baroque era, and the high altar is devoted to St. Martin. The church received its current appearance the last time it was changed in 1935. Until the start of the 19th century, the church was surrounded by walls, which also included a cemetery.
In front of the entrance to the church, you can see a stone lion that depicts the preserved part of a large Roman tombstone.
