In this place was the primary seat of the Metlika parish, till the year 1461, when was transported to the city. Tri fare (Three parishes) with three churches so became only the three branches. They are the greatest art monuments and rare remainders of the Gothic architecture in Bela krajina. The northern church, which is also the biggest, is consecrated to Our lady of Sorrows. Inside you can see the oldest organs, which were made in former Kranjska and are the work of the famous organist Jozef Egartner from Kranj with images of the evangelists, apostles and scenes from the Old testament. The middle church is consecrated to the whipped Jesus. By the western side stands the belfry with the lean against open shed, so the people could be under the roof in the bad weather.
