Address: Pomjan, Pomjan, 6274 Šmarje
The parish Church of St. George is located in the middle of the village, on somewhat elevated ground.

As mentioned in his Corografia Ecclesiastica from 1700, the Bishop of Koper, Paolo Naldini, says that the patron of the church is St. George and that the church was consecrated on 16th April 1222 by Bishop Absalon. In 1698, the church got a new vestry, while the church was fully refurbished in 1796 and 1915, as evident from the inscription on the portal. Even though the church is basilican in type, it has a single nave. Naldini mentioned that the high altar was dedicated to St. George, the right altar to the Holy of Holies and the left to St. Sebastian and St. Rocco. During his time, the vestry was constructed behind the choir, enlarging the church and making it more beautiful. The figures of St. Joseph and St. Paul standing along the south altar were probably made in Val Gardena in the early 20th century. The freestanding bell tower (25.65 m) was built in 1866, as evident from the plaque. Above it, there is a relief featuring St. George slaying a dragon.
