Statue of Saint Paul - Podgorje

 Podgorje 7, 9253 Apače ( Map )

Description

The life-size statue of St. Paul is situated on the crossroad in Podgorje, across from no. 4 and no.5. It stands on a round, stone pedestal and it is a beautiful centrepiece for the small square, where travellers can stop and rest. The characteristics of the statue reveal it was probably made in the 17th century. Years ago, it used to stand across the road and the villagers claim even back then it came from some other location, but no one knows from where.
