Štanjel has for many years been an inspiration for many artists and today it offers a home to their works of art. At the forefront is the rich legacy of Lojze Spacal, today considered one of the most prominent artists in post-war Slovenia and Italy, and a world-renowned artist. The Lojze Spacal Gallery in Štanjel Castle is a temple of aesthetic experiences, where Spacal’s entire vision of the Karst unfolds before the visitor’s eyes.
