About This Spot

Holy Trinity Church is a historical building in Hrastovlje, a village in southwestern Slovenia. There are two hypotheses about its origin. According to the first, it is a Romanesque church from the 12th century. According to the second, it is an example of the Istrian variant of Early Venetian Renaissance architecture from the 15th century. The church stands behind a wall that the local population built to protect itself from Turkish attacks in the 16th century. Examples of defensive architecture are found throughout the territory settled by Slovenians and are called tabor.

What attracts most people to this little church is the famous Dance of Death or Danse Macabre, representing people of all walks of life from kings and popes to beggars and babies being led by skeletons towards Death itself
