Historic Sites
Štanjel is a village in the Municipality of Komen in the Littoral region of Slovenia. It is located on the Karst Plateau overlooking the Vipava Valley. In the 17th century it was fortified to defend it against Ottoman raids. It was heavily damaged during World War II and it has been slowly rebuilt since.HistoryBecause of its geographical location it has been an important settlement in the area since the iron age. The settlement itself began developing in the Roman Era, although Gothic elements in architecture have also been preserved.During World War II the village served as a smaller base for the German occupation units, and was heavily damaged during the Allied bombing at the end of the war. After the war it was gradually renovated. After the war, a notable resident of the village was the graphic artist Lojze Spacal.LandmarksCastleThe castle of Štanjel was built in the Middle Ages, its final reconstruction which remains up to this day was made at the end of the 17th century by the Counts of Cobenzl. An art gallery with a permanent collection of Spacal's work is in the castle.
