Church of St Blaise and the Bell Tower, Padna

541487 /default/2017/znamenitosti/padna/

This is the only church in Slovenia dedicated to St Blaise, the patron saint of the village. This Baroque-style building boasts a marble altar with a wooden statue of St Blaise. Its stone bell tower is 26.5 meters high and was built by the people of Padna, who are believed to have funded the project by selling chard (a leafy green vegetable popular in Mediterranean cuisine).
