The Church of St Mary of the Snows

  Belec 52, Zlatar      (+385-49) 46 53 02     27 Mar 2019
The tiny village of Belec has one of the loveliest Baroque churches in Europe, with an illusionist painted interior and lavishly furnished. The church was built on the foundations of an older chapel and consecrated to Our Lady of the Snows by Duchess Elizabeth Keglević Erdody around 1675. However pleasing the church appears from outside with its lemon yellow walls and huddle of low red roofs, it’s no preparation for the explosion of colour and ornament within. The church has five altars, a pulpit and choir in gilded wood, and frescoes cover all surfaces of the interior of the church and sacristy. It’s quite breathtaking. This is one of the loveliest Baroque churches in Europe.
