Cerkev Marijinega oznanjenja (Church of the Annunciation) – Adergas

North of the village is the valley Graben, where once was a famous Dominican convent Velesovo with a primary pilgrim church, established in 1238 at the church Saint Marjeta, was mentioned already in 1163.

Once a monastery, today a parish church has a rich cultural and historical heritage. In 1238 beside this chapel a Dominican monastery was built. The church received after its renovation between 1732 and 1771 typical elements of Italian architecture with a hall design with lowered walls in form of a chapel, where two altars are placed and with a bright roof. The interior is designed after the Ursuline Church in Ljubljana, the front doubtlessly indicates that the architect searched for paragons in the front of the Ljubljana Town Hall.
