The Church of Virgin Mary on the Stone

The Church of Virgin Mary on the Stone is a pilgrimage church and a true architectural pearl that was returned to its former glitter by the appropriate restoration interventions. The church was first mentioned in 1383, although it was built at least a few decades earlier. Josip Mravljak wrote an interesting legend about its creation that says that Virgin Mary saved a young pilgrim, who was condemned by the Lord of the castle, from death. However, regardless of the legend, it can be assumed that due to its position, it was connected with the nearby mansion and its chaplain, who even had benefice, and was also the chaplain of the castle. The excellent status of the church is reflected also in the equipment, which had to be more ambitious than the present, as can be deduced from the preserved late Gothic sculpture of Christ's birth. The preserved reliefs in the fragment date back to the period from 1510 to 1515. What paintings kept the Gothic statue - probably not the only one - company, is yet to be established.
