Predjama Castle’s lesson is clear – if you want to build an impregnable redoubt, put it in the gaping mouth of a cavern halfway up a 123m cliff. Its four storeys were built piecemeal over the years from 1202, but most of what you see today is from the 16th century.
Three kilometres east of the town, fabulous Kromberk Castledating from the 17th century, houses the Goriško Museum . It features important archaeological, ethnological and fine-arts collections. You’ll also find the fabulous Grajska Klet restaurant located here.
