Vipavski Križ

Vipavski Križ

The walled medieval town of Vipavski Križ is one of Slovenia's most beautiful cultural history monuments. Easy to spot when arriving to the Vipava Valley, it beckons from a hillock over the motorway, inviting travellers to peek inside its ancient secrets. The ruined castle and medieval houses huddled between its walls tells stories of an age when this little town was the economic and administrative centre of the upper Vipava Valley. After a stroll down its enchanting old alleys you can visit the Capuchin monastery with its extraordinary wealth of baroque artworks and extensive library. The monastery was built next to the Castle of Vipavski Križ in the eponymous medieval town in 1637 at the behest of the Counts of Attems. Ever since, the monastery has been virtually continuously inhabited by Capuchin monks, who made a great mark on the erstwhile town of Vipavski Križ. The monastery is noted for the precious library of 25,000 books, of which 2,000 were printed from 1510 to 1800.
