Hrastovlje is a village in the Commune Koper. It is located in the northwestern part of the Slovenian Istra under the Karst edge (limestone region). Houses in the village are markedly mediterranean or karstic type with many portals and archs of the limestone. Lots of houses is under memorial protection and because of that the procedures of the renovations are more complicated and they impede the aesthetic development of the place. Hrastovlje is most known by the Romanic Church of the holy trinity from the beginning of the 12 century, which is situated on the rising ground above the village. In the 16 th century they surrounded it with the high defensive, camping walls, which are still yet very well preserved, but they cover the view to the building. Outwards the church is simple and covered with stony plates as is the habit in Mediterranean. Most interesting and precious is its interior with three ship's architecture. The Church of the holy trinity became international known in the year 1951, when the frescoes of the Dead dance were uncovered by the patriotic sculptor Joze Pohlen. The church was ranged to the list of the world's cultural heritage. South of the village stands the stony statue called Savrinka by Pohlen, which was once the name for the women from Trieste who carried on heads their rustic harvest.
