The picturesque village is perched under the steep edge of the Karst plateau Stena, at a height of 305m. The houses have an interesting layout and architecture.
Overlooking the village on a steep hill is a round defence tower from the 11th
century, part of the defence system of the Venetian Republic on the boarder between Venice and Austria. It offers a wonderful view over the Rižana Valley, reaching all the way to Trieste.
