The Church of Our Lady of the Snows

This small church from the 15th century was built as a private chapel for a rich lady from Piran. Above the entrance, there is a painting of Our Lady of the Snows, which depicts the miraculous August snowfall in Rome and thus gives the church its name. In the 17th century, when the object was given a Baroque-style renovation, precious oil paintings were preserved together with fretted frames.
