Franciscan Church of the Annunciation

Turn the other cheek might as well be the biggest lie ever told.  Today I got a fair share of  “turn the other cheek and give an evil eye” stares.  I was simply trying to take a few quiet pictures of this lovely early-Baroque Franciscan Church.  Built in the mid 1600’s the layout takes the form of a basilica with one nave and two rows of side-chapels.  Many of the original frescoes were ruined by the cracks in the ceiling caused by the Ljubljana earthquake in 1895 but today the church is undergoing a massive renovation to remedy this.  Great place – few pictures.  I guess Easter Thursday is not a great place for tourists in a church – who knew?!

    What a beautiful church. Love the last shot of the doorway. An addition to Karen’s coffee table book, perhaps.

    For a small town in a country that only gained its independence in 1991 – there is a lot going on here and the main square with the three way bridge is absolutely beautiful. This truly is a great place off the beaten path. Too bad about the mass I would have liked to take a few more photos.
