3.Franciscan Monastery with the Church of Mary of Nazareth

On the hill above Nazarje, the Ljubljana Bishop Tomaž Hren commissioned a Loreto chapel in the years from 1624 to 1627. After a few years, the management was taken over by the Franciscans, who built a monastery, and in 1661 they added a church, surrounding the Loreto chapel. As early as in 1639, the Franciscans finished with the construction of the monastery which became famous for its own pharmacy and an extensive library.

The Franciscan monastery fathers will reveal secrets of the library, which keeps texts from the 11th century onwards, and includes special treasures, such as two copies of Dalmatin's Bible (1584) and Trubar’s translation of gospels (1582). You will also visit the church with predominantly Baroque ornaments and learn about the history of Loreto chapel.

Duration: 45–60 minutes
Price: €2.00/person

4.Monastery of the Poor Clares – the Clarisses

Located next to the Franciscan monastery is the Monastery of the Poor Clares. In it, sisters who live in seclusion – away from the world, dedicate their days and nights to prayer. In addition to praying, they study spirituality, practice church singing, bake sacramental bread, maintain the garden and do various household and other manual works (sewing, creating bobbin lace, embroidery).

Due to the strict order, entry to the monastery is not allowed. Despite that, the Clarisses gladly host visitors in the outer chapel, sing songs and tell stories about their exceptional way of life.

Duration: 60 minutes
Price: voluntary contributions

The house where the painter Jože Horvat Jaki lived and created for many years was purchased by the Nazarje Municipality and converted into a learning centre and a gallery.

In the artist's former studio, rearranged as a gallery, you will be able to admire a permanent exhibition of paintings donated to the local community by Jože Horvat. Occasionally, the former artist’s gallery hosts exhibitions of renowned Slovenian fine artists, organised by the local cultural society several times a year.
