In a pine forest near the village is a small prehistoric ancient fort where
once was a quarry with dark grey Karst marble. A roman path from Štivan
to Ajdovščina led past here in the past.
A small church of St Jožef treasures a stone baroque altar from the 18th
century. In the centre of the village stands a statue of St Janez Nepomuk,
a Czech patron, which was presumably brought here by Czech soldiers
from Goriška region. Next to the statue is a NOB monument dedicated to
the fell NOB combatants and by the road to Štanjel you can admire a pil.
In the village grow several mulberry trees, which in the past were used as
food for silkworms. The village’s festival is celebrated on the Sunday after
the 10th of August, on the St Lovrenc name day.
