Saint Jedrt church in the village Selo under hill Tošč.

 

Saint Jedrt church in the village Selo under hill Tošč.This idyllic little church is halfway towards hill Tošč. If you want to go to the top of the hill, you take left turn behind the church and, of course, uphill.  The first mentioning of this church dates back to 1526. Years ago, during the renovation, there was Romanesque part discovered within the church core, therefore historians agree we could add at least additional few hundred years to the age of this old sacral building.

Fact: Word “Selo” in old Slovenian also means Village, which makes English translation literally VILLAGE VILLAGE. Yes, Village twice.

In history, important freight rout went here, so it is estimated that first inhabitants came a long time ago. Although the church was renovated in the middle of the 18th century, it has retained some elements of older periods.

These facts became obvious because of stones with the years 1756 and 1778 engraved on the part of the stairs. On the walls, there are remains of frescoes that date back to the middle of the 16th century. In the past the church had three altars, but today only one remains, dating back to around 1800.

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.
