Prkič House

Podpeč, Podpeč, 6275 Črni Kal
The remains of the oldest architectural element in the village can be found in the restored »Laška« and »Prkičeva hiša« (Homestead no. 16) from 1547.

The buildings are similar in type to Benkova hiša in Črni kal, which was built by masters Andrej and Benko from Sočerga and served as their stonecutting workshop. The quality construction and the ambitious design of the stonecutting details show that this is the work of specialised master builders. The representative western façade that faces the village particularly stands out. The portals, the storey window and the door hinge of the main gate are of exceptional stonecutting. The restoration work on the abandoned and decrepit house was conducted in 1986/87 and finished in 1988. The house was restored to its original condition from the 16th century. It now holds a permanent collection dedicated to the Karst Edge Landscape Park. Homestead no. 5 and the Laška hiša house opposite create a picturesque entrance to the village. The oldest part of the house is the western part with the portal, which is the only portal on an Istrian farmhouse with a pointed arch. The Laška hiša house dates back to the 15th or 16th century. It is a single-celled house with a wooden ceiling and a dug-in cellar. It is built in late Gothic style from symmetrically cut stone blocks. The massive portal with its sharp Gothic edge is related to the oldest preserved portals from the 15th and 16th centuries in the villages from the Karst edge.
