  • Beautiful church, with a famous bell tower which has a several theories about its form "without typical roof". I'am not sure, but I think that curch is not open every day and all the day.

  • The parish church of St. Danijela is located in the old part of Štanjelo, in Gornja vas, it is visible immediately upon entering the castle gate. The church was built between 1455 and 1460 on the site of an older building. Despite later Baroque reconstructions, it represents one of the key monuments of Gothic architecture in the Karst. From the characteristic Gothic elements, two more Gothic entrances and bricked-up windows and a cornice of external buttresses next to the presbytery can be seen on the exterior. Inside, a Gothic pointed arch leads to the presbytery. The church got its baroque appearance in the 17th and 18th centuries. The most interesting is the relief depiction of Štanjel Castle on the main altar. Next to the main altar are two wooden statues of saints, the work of the important Styrian sculptor Johan Straub. The bell tower was added to the church about 150 years later, in 1609, and because of its unique roof, it became a symbol of Štanjel.
