Podpeč

Address:
Črni Kal
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. Located under the tower is the Grad cave, which served as a refuge during the Turkish invasions. Located in the immediate vicinity are several smaller caves with remains from the pre-Roman period. The other village sights are the restored house Prkičeva hiša from 1547, the former stonecutting workshop of Benko brothers, and the cemetery St. Helen’s Church with precious 15th century frescoes.
