St. Martin's Church

Location: Avče

St. Martin’s Church is a building in the late Gothic style with a rectangular, straight aisle and a star-like, ribbed arched presbytery with frescoes dating back to 1470. In the church there is an oil painting of Saint Martin with a beggar, which was painted by Andrej Avgust Bucik, who was born in the vicinity of Avče. It was painted for the occasion of the church renovation after World War I. The church excels in its accuracy of reconstruction and rich stony details. When doing the renovation in 1924, they found remains from the Roman times: Roman coins and jewellery and that is why we can deduce that in those times a settlement had already been built.
