Church of St John the Baptist in Spodnji Otok
Spodnji Otok, 4240 Radovljica
On the fringes of the plain, beneath the wooded rolling hills that wend their way between the villages of Begunje and Podvin, the old Church of St John the Baptist stands atop a small hill. Its front façade will welcome you with exquisitely preserved wall paintings that date back to the fifteenth century.
The church, which is just a few minutes' walk from the village of Spodnji Otok
, is dedicated to St John the Baptist and was first mentioned in 1405. It is surrounded by walls that date back to the time of the Turkish invasions, an emerging menace between the end of the fifteenth and first half of the sixteenth centuries.
