Hrastovlje, Slovenia

Hrastovlje Church

 

This church in Hrastovlje is located in the middle of nowhere but is a real jewel that is worth visiting. It is surrounded by vineyards and orchards that for some reason reminded me of St Remy de Provence’s olive orchards.
We arrived after 6pm and it was closed but a neighbor made a phone call and a nice lady came and opened for us.
The frescos, dating from 1490, were discovered sometimes in the 1950s. The most impressive is famous dance of death, a meditation on life and our superfluous goals.
