Church of Saint Lawrence

 

The church stands on the Mount of Sv. Lovrenc at 608 m.a.s.l...My hiking trails were leading to a beautiful hill above the city of Škofja Loka. What caught my eye on the route, besides all the nature and beautiful day, was this little church.
 
If you go right to the village of Podpulferca, you’ll soon see the church of St. Lovrenc. The church stands on the Mount of Sv. Lovrenc, which is 608 m.a.s.l., but the little church is at an altitude of 550 m.a.s.l. on the steep slope above town Zminec. According to the frescoes discovered within the church, historians estimate that this idyllic church is here from the early 15th century.
 
In 1824, an lightning struck burned it. At that time, the previous wooden ceiling was replaced by a cement.

Let me help you find the path.

Starting point is exact location at which I started hiking trip. Usually it is parking lote. Please note, that my hiking trips are never close because I like to explore. If you want to get closer to the goal, use my starting point as a reference in maps and you can chose something closer to the destination. Sometimes I walk few kilometers, but sometimes even 10 or 12 km in one directon.
