Gradno whose name probably derives from "graden" (sessile oak), an oak species that was once the most common tree in Brda, is full of interesting details. Here stands the interesting Church of St. George where Stations of the Cross were painted by a world-renowned painter Zoran Mušič and part of a painting is work of the painter and graphic artist Lojze Spacal. On the church wall there is a memorial plate dedicated to a priest, a prominent national revival figure, a publicist and a pedagogue Andrej Žnidarčič who served in Gradno for 28 years and whose efforts were dedicated to restraining the penetration of the Italian spirit organized in the Lega Nazionale.
In the village you can see two nice examples of renovated dry stone walls made of local sandstone. This kind of walls are a true rarity nowadays in Brda. Above one of these walls, the oldest olive grove in Brda is catching the sun.
