Its exceedingly well preserved prehistoric settlement with man-made terraces and defensive rampart, its great number of family mounds, its lively history of archaeological research and rich archaeological finds put Magdalene mountain among the best known archaeological sites in Slovenia. Most of the finds date between the 8th century B.C. and 1st century B.C. and some finds are from Roman and Medieval times. They are kept in museums in Ljubljana, Vienna and Harvard. On the top of the hill, on the site of the acropolis of the ancient settlement, stands the church of St Magdalene, built in rustic gothic style. The church, first mentioned in writing in 1366 is dedicated to St Magdalene, a very vivacious woman, who became a saint when she met Jesus.
