The Church of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

This is one of the places I’ve never heard of, but when I saw the photo of this church, I wanted to go there and take photos. Unfortunately, the gates were closed, so I couldn’t enter, but I’m happy I went there. Besides the cool walls around the church, the second best things were the views. I could talk a lot about the views, but I will let you watch the photos (go to the Showcase page, where you can see all the images I got there).

The Church of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a Roman Catholic church located in Vinagora, within the municipality of Pregrada, and is a protected cultural heritage site.

This parish church, situated atop a hill in the settlement of Vinagora, features a cruciform layout. It comprises a rectangular nave with side chapels and a polygonal sanctuary, all encircled by a cincture. The church was constructed in the 18th century on the site of an older chapel, while the surrounding cincture dates back to the 19th century. The church’s inventory primarily dates from the latter half of the 18th century and the early 19th century.

Adjacent to the church, to its east, stands the parochial house, built in 1858. This building features a two-story facade, but only a single story on its western side. The upper floor houses the largest and most representative room, the palace. Under the code Z-3521, the Church of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is registered as an immovable cultural property. It holds the legal status of a protected cultural good and is classified as “sacral architectural heritage.” This designation underscores the church’s historical and architectural significance within the region.
