Among the most beautiful old villages on the plateaus above deep valleys, dating back to the Middle Ages is the village Ledine above Spodnja Idrija, first mentioned as early as 1063. Until the 19th century the village belonged to the well-known Freising dominion in Škofja Loka, but in the recent decades the connection to Idrija has become stronger.

The plateau of Ledine has for ages been marked by wealthy and proud farmers, whereas some extra income was made by domestic crafts and lacemaking.

Besides hiking, mountaineering (the Sivka) and cycling the plateau is becoming increasingly known for farm tourism, mostly due to the extremely pro-active tourist farm Pr' Jureč. The main cultural and historical monument in the village is the parish church of Sv. Jakob (St. Jacob) with a precious altar painting of the saint by the famous Slovenian painter Janez Šubic, dating from 1877. The church of Sv. Ahacij (St. Achatius)  in the nearby settlement Ledinske Krnice is also interesting for various researchers.
