The charming village of Ledine is situated on a high plateau of gently rolling meadows above the Idrijca valley. Several protected sites include Ledine 6 which retains its traditional domestic fresco decoration, Ledine 20 and its ancient byre, the lime trees near the chapel, and the Church of St. Jacob, a lovely late-Gothic church with some Renaissance details.

The altar panels date from 1877 and are thought to be the work of Jurij Šubic, while the geometric ceiling design with its heart-shaped details is echoed in the pattern of decoration on the floor.


The ancient cycle of agricultural life is kept very much alive in this rural community where working displays of threshing, grinding and milling by traditional methods may be seen. There is a fine collection of tools and early farm machinery. Flax is also grown in the surrounding fields, a visual delight when in flower, and the process of producing linen from the raw crop may also be seen. Take some time to walk into the woods around the village before returning for some well-earned locally produced food and drink.
