Italian Chapel at Ladra, Slovenia

At the edge of the field in the west part of the village Ladra stands an Italian military chapel, designed by the architect Giovanni Michelucci. It was consecrated on 30 May 1917 and served for the outdoor religious ceremonies. The chapel is made of worked stone. The south and the north walls have a Gothic-styled window each. A pulpit is set in the southeast corner. The chapel was restored in 1993 and 2005. The path leading to the chapel runs along the right bank of the brook Ročica.
