The beautiful sites of the Vipava Valley show a curious diversity due to the range of epochs and reasons behind their creation. Celtic tribes once lived here by the water sources, the Roman Empire maintained military fortifications and fought decisive battles, the noble families of the Middle Ages and beyond commanded over the land, building luxurious mansions and castles. Every corner of the old valley countryside whispers of colourful history, clever ideas and sparkling achievements. In recent times, too, these parts have maintained their openness, staying connected with the world while steadily holding on to respected tradition.
The elegant well preserved buildings invite visitors to pause and wonder, enticing them to quench their curiosity and aesthetic enjoyment in the many small museums and galleries of the valley. Strolling the narrow alleys and little squares is always a pleasant experience, while a stop at the wine shop or restaurant, where one can enjoy a good taste of homemade food, rounds out the day in a truly satisfying way. Genuine and unforgettable.
