Holy Trinity Church reviews
A church that stands on the site where a cupbearer discovered mercury when he soaked the cupboards before selling them.
Holy Trinity Church is the oldest church in Idrija. It is set up at the point where a "mercury" (the man who found the mercury) is supposed to first notice the native mercury while soaking the cabinets. First, the original wooden church was erected today. By the early 17th century, the building had a Gothic presbytery, a wooden nave, and a flat and painted ceiling. Over time, the church itself changed. She was in a bit of a crisis after the time when St. Barbara's Parish Church was erected. But today, the Church of the Holy Trinity has been beautifully renovated. It was renovated by the Parish of Idrija in 1981-1984, according to the plans of architect France Kvaternik. The building has been restored to its authentic design or design. The interior of the church is beautiful, with historical and contemporary stylistic elements being emphasized. The most striking are the lively colored stained glass windows of academic painter Lojze Čemažar. The latter connected the biblical and Idrian themes in a meaningful way. More or less, the church and its stained glass windows can only be observed and admired from the outside. The visit is suitable for adults as well as families with children. If you go around the church you can also see the beautiful Idrija beehive from the back.
