The Pilgrimage Church of St. Roch, built to commemorate the victims of the cholera epidemic, is a good example of rural sacral architecture of the late Baroque classicism from 1764. It was supposedly designed by architect Lovrenc Prager. Its predecessor is mentioned in written records dating back to1658 and is dedicated to the Assumption of Mary.

On the outside, it is a relatively simple building with temple façade and a belfry rising above, while its interior reveals a centralising three-bay design with a domed arch over the central bay. At the altar part of presbytery, a fresco depicts the Assumption of Mary by Matija Schiffer from the early 19th century.

 The church occasionally hosts secular events, in particular concerts.
