The Vipavski Kriz is a picturesque village situated on a hill in the middle of the Vipava Valley. The Kriz is one of the most valuable and important monuments of cultural heritage, which is also under monumental protection. The original prehistoric settlement was first mentioned in written sources in 1252, and the place flourished after 1532, when it got city rights. It was encircled by the walls of the Counts of Gorizia in 1482. The area of the village can be divided into three parts, which are Plac, Gase and the Grad. The Gase is the oldest part of the village and has narrow streets with one and two storey houses. At the end of the 15th century, a Renaissance castle with four circular towers was built by the Count of Gorizia. Today, it is only partially preserved. Parish Church of Holy Cross is late Gothic one-story building that was baroqued in the 17th century. It houses two early gold altars and a chapel of the Holy Cross from 1682, which has a rich stucco. Below the church is a memorial plaque on which it says that at this place had a speech to the crowd Primož Trubar in 1563. The plate was discovered in 1986. The well-known Slovenian preacher Janez Svetokriski (1647-1714) was in the Capuchin's monastery, founded in 1636. In front of the monastery we can see his statue. In the monastery church of Saint Francis of Assisi is one of the largest canvases of the 17th century in the country, which is the work of Brother Oswald.
