The inhabitants of the Ledine plateau went on a pilgrimage to Marija na Skalci (church of St. Mary in Spodnja Idrija) every year. According to tradition the Virgin Mary heard their pleas and protected the people and crops from hailstorms and granted them bountiful harvest. We, however, will take the pilgrim path in the opposite direction – from »Fara« (Sp. Idrija) to Ledine.

The inhabitants of the Ledine plateau went on a pilgrimage to Marija na Skalci (church of St. Mary in Spodnja Idrija) every year. According to tradition the Virgin Mary heard their pleas and protected the people and crops from hailstorms and granted them bountiful harvest. We, however, will take the pilgrim path in the opposite direction – from »Fara« (Sp. Idrija) to Ledine.
 

Start the route at the baroque church of Marija Vnebovzeta (church dedicated to the Asumption of Mary) in Spodnja Idrija. Go down the church stairway to Mary's chapel, cross the Idrijca and continue past the Kendov dvorec toward the protected homestead at Trnje. A path leading to the homestead at Žorgovše branches off the gravel road. On the way make a stop at the chapel dedicated to St. Mary, where the pilgrims bowed their heads in respect at the first view of the church at Fara. Just a short way from the house at Žorgovše opens a nice view of the village and the valley. Past the abandoned mills – Pečiniški mlini continue the way to Pečnik and Ledine.

From Ledine continue past the homestead 'pri Šnitu', a smaller chapel above the way and the homestead in Staje go down into the valley.
