Location: Gorenji Mokronog, Slovenia
area: 250 m2
type: sacral architecture
year of construction: 2023


The location lies directly on the Trebelno - Gorenji Mokronog road outside the compact settlements and is under cultural protection. Project comprises the reconstruction of the Church of St. Peter in Gorenji Mokronog, reconstruction of the chapel with ossuary near the church and the new construction of the retaining wall in the form of a stone structure, plus various exterior designs (footpaths, staircases, fences).
The church stands on a slope, raised above the road. The former parish church is orginally a medieval building from the 11th or 12th century, later renovated in the Baroque style. The nave originally had a flat wooden ceiling, which was replaced by a vaulted one in the second half of the 18th century. A bell tower was added to the west wall of the nave, and a sacristy to the north wall. The equipment from this time is also partially preserved - the altar and the pulpit. There are two layers of wall paintings in the nave of the church. The older, only fragmentarily preserved painting dates from the 15th century, while the younger one, which is in a slightly better condition, dates from the second half of the 16th century. At the end of the 17th century, the parish had as many as eleven branches. In 1780, its seat was transferred to the Church of Holly Cross in Trebelno.
Near the church, higher on the slope, stands the Romanesque chapel of St. Michael with ossuary dating from the 12th or 13th century. The chapel comprises two spaces. The bones are stored in the lower room and the upper room is a chapel.
Reconstruction of the church of St. Peter covered the reconstruction of damaged or unsuitable parts. It comprised a new facade (new plaster, painting, eaves…), replacement of roofing and, when necessary, wooden roof structure, cleaning and impregnation of doors, replacement of windows, construction of new interior plasters, new paving of the church interior… Preserved equipment was restored, other necessary equipment the interior of the church was rebuilt. Interior paintings were to be restored.
Reconstruction of the chapel of St. Michael included reconstruction of walls - removal of concrete seals and filling of missing parts with stones, application of pavement in the ossuary, correction of the roof structure including replacement of roofing and protection of the building from intrusion of animals and leaves.
