The castle hill in Senožeče

The landscape takes its name from the largest settlement here, Senožeče. Since throughout history, major routes have led through here from the coast to the interior, the town, mentioned back in the 12th century, quickly developed, especially through the wagon hauling trade.

The town gained market rights very early on, and the major route – named the Imperial Way – was protected by the old castle Stari grad above the settlement. The original Senožeče Castle stood on the hill above the town, but only its ruins remain.

In the 17th century the noble family of Porzia built the new manor of Snosetsch at the foot of the castle hill, and this also housed the local courthouse, but today it, too, is in ruins.
