Succursal church of Sveti Rok (St. Rok)

written on a plaque on a church:
The baroque church of Sveto Rok was built after the cholera epidemic around 1764. The picturesque exterior complements well the accomplished interiro with a large fresco depicting Mary's death. On the St. Roch's name day, namely on 16 August, many believers make a pilgrimage to the church. St. Roch's name day was especially celebrated by craftsmen and tradesmen from Brezice. The sacral space is now and then used for dievers secular events, mostely concerts.
