The current renaissance castle was constructed in the late 16th century, although earlier castles in the same location were mentioned in history as far back as the 13th century.  This castle is perhaps best known for the legend of knight Erazem’s hideout and death.  If you ever intend to trek the Slovenia portion of Via Alpina (red), this castle is a worthwhile stop.
