Italian church in village Mahovljani

When, in 1883, several Italian families moved into the Laktasi village of Mahovljani, they built a church for their religious needs. The church is a monument protected by the state. It is dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi. In the surrounding area of the church, which is located on a beautiful viewpoint, there is a large church vineyard, which is tended to by the church clergy as well as numerous volunteers from Italy.
