Castles and Mansions
The Škofja Loka area is dotted
with numerous castles and mansions. The earliest date back to the 13th century,
others were completely transformed after the great earthquake of 1511, and the 'youngest'
among them were built as recently as the 17th century. There is a wealth of
history and legends amongst them.
The castles and mansions were built in
carefully chosen locations, which visitors from far and wide still find
breathtaking today. Some also contain museums that invite visitors to acquaint
themselves with the history and way of life in the Škofja Loka area in past
