The Lookout Tower is located on the hill Mejnik above the village Gonjace. It is a central point in Goriska brda and the belvedere which in nice weather offers wonderful views to Goriska brda, Furlanija, Carnian and Julian Alps, Trnovo forest, Dolomite, Karst, Trieste bay and Vipava Valley. The Lookout Tower is 23 meters high, has 144 steps and was built in 1961. The plans did the architect Marko Slajmer. Beside the tower is a memorial, which is dedicated to victims of World War II on the right bank of the Soca River. An interesting monument is work of the academical sculptor and painter Janez Boljka. The engraved verses are written by the writer France Bevk.
