Limbarska Gora has had a great reputation among pilgrims and other hikers for centuries, offering, next to the pilgrimage church of sv. Valentina, a magnificent view of all sides of the sky.
In addition to the Church of sv. Valentina, Limbarska Gora was originally the site of Limbarski Castle, which Valvazor said was named after the lilies. The original church was built around 1667. It quickly became famous among pilgrims and became too small, so it was enlarged in the first half of the 18th century. The construction was led by Gregor Maček from Ljubljana, who achieved great success with this Baroque architectural creation.
The rich treasury of art on Limbarska Gora was created during the time when the Brotherhood of sv. Valentina was active, when mass pilgrimages were held here. People still love to come here today, from near and far. sv. Valentina was an intercessor against physical weaknesses and infectious diseases, and was especially recommended by the divine sick. In the church there are many signs of people who have been miraculously healed through the intercession of the saints. The shed in the front of the church sheltered many pilgrims, and masses were held here on the occasion of large pilgrimage gatherings, as the large crowds could not enter the church.
You will feel the pulse of Limbarska Gora most at one of the pilgrimage gatherings or at the Limbarska Gora Carnation Walk.
