Kostanjevica – a local heritage gem
Located on a hill over Nova Gorica, the Franciscan Monastery Kostanjevica is particularly notable for the crypt of the Bourbon dynasty, holding the remains of the last King of France and his descendants. A special highlight of the monastery is the Škrabec library with a precious collection of old tomes. Take a stroll through the park and marvel at one of the most impressive collections of Bourbon roses in the world. It's no coincidence that the rose is also the symbol of Nova Gorica.
