Kostanjevica Monastery information
On a 143m hill south of the train station (signed 'Grobnica Bourboni'), this monastery was founded by the Capuchin Franciscans in the early 17th century and has a library with 10,000 volumes and 30 incunabula. In the crypt of the Church of the Annunciation is the Tomb of the Bourbons , which contains the mortal remains of the last members of the French house of Bourbon. This includes Charles X (1757–1836), who died of cholera while on holiday in Gorizia and was buried here.
