Within the Idrija hills Kanomlja is the largest and the most widespread side valley. It is sunk deep between the plateaus of Vojsko and Krnice in the line of the famous tectonic fault spreading from Veneto in Italy over the Idrija region and all the way to the region of Notranjska. 

Its magnificence can be observed from the viewpoint Hudournik above the village Oblakov Vrh. In the 14th century, when the first farms occurred in the valley, Kanomlja was named Kolumba (Columba), most probably due to the then widespread wood pigeon (Columba palumbus) species.Beside farming the valley was known for several crafts and the beginning of iron foundries (Fežina). Along the small river Kanomljica and its confluences as many as 29 mills, 4 saws and 3 stamp mills were in operation.

Local fishermen pay a lot of attention to the development of fishing and they have a modern fish farm in Srednja Kanomlja.  Among the natural monuments the most admirable are the wonderful waterfall on the Ovčjakarica brook and the 400-meter long water cave under the Studenček by the Klavžarica water bed.

Many homesteads in Kanomlja have retained the approximately 200-year old 'farm frescoes'. You can still admire them on the Mohorič, Rovt and Jevaniš farms. The most beautiful examples of this type of folk art can be admired at the Šturmajce farm in the village Gorenja Kanomlja, where the whole facade of the farmhouse is decorated with frescoes.
