This lovely church is front and center in Preseren square and will feature prominently in your many photos of this beautiful town. This is also the meeting spot for the daily walking tour which is highly recommended to get the most of the sights.

You cannot miss the pink facade of the church. It is in the heart of Old Town right next to the Triple Bridge. It is particularly beautiful after dark when it is lit up.
