The local parish church, built on a slight elevation in the western part of the settlement, is dedicated to Saint Roch (Slovene: sveti Rok) and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Ljubljana. It was built in 1818. A chapel dedicated to Saint Margaret, outside the settlement to the east, is the converted surviving sanctuary of a larger 16th-century church, belonging to the same parish.
