The famous pilgrim church
The church of St. Primož and Felicijan is famous for the remarkable fresco paintings by Valentin Metzinger and it is also known for the gothic-renaissance frescos dating back to 1504 where everyday life from the near-by locals is portrayed.
Also of great importance is the smaller church of St. Peter originally built in the 15th Century on a smaller hill behind the church or the old presbytery; it is also famous for the imminent ceiling paintings.
The old presbytery - inn
In the old presbytery with a traditional kitchen, which is a unique museum of cultural and architectural heritage, where the time almost stops, a small inn is arranged where hikers, after an hour’s walk, can get a drink or a snack, to recover from the hike.
Over years, the inn has become a popular place for hikers visiting St. Primož almost every day whereas some people visit it even several times a day. They usually say that they have been “up there”. Visiting the inn represents a getaway from the city noise, everyday stress and it is offering you a place where you can chat without pressure and to good people since the visitors “burn” their bad mood and annoyance already on their way up.
The traditional offer of the inn is adjusted to the mountain conditions; however there is always room for a home-made sausage from the traditional kitchen. It can also be arranged, in case of ordering in advance, that a full meal is prepared for a larger group.
Organized groups can also enjoy a guided tour through the church, the presbytery and other St. Primož’s sightseeing points.
