    Franciscan Church

    This beautiful baroque monument was built between 1646 and 1660. Its greater altar is the work of sculptor Francesco Robba, from 1736. The vaults were painted by Matevz Langus in the mid-19th century, and restored in the 1930s by Sternen.

    the franciscan church

    This Franciscan church is another fine example of Baroque architecture in Ljiblijana, and it was built between 1646 and 1660. The most striking feaure is the façade: the second reason is that there are three niches with Baroque figures. What's the first reason, youll ask? The colour, of course: pink. Much as I dislike pink this church is my favourite meeting point when catching up with friends, since it's so unmistakeable. While you are there remember to take a look at the nearby Triple Bridge (Tromostovje).

    Franciscan Church of the Annunciation
    A vivid pink 17th century church right on Presernov Trg. A good looking building with a brightly coloured interior. Watch out for the skeleton of a Saint!
