Plague Spot

The plague spot on Trata, along the road to Semič, is one of the oldest and rarest stone signs in Bela krajina. It is a reminder of the plague, which has devastated the region a few centuries ago. The sign is made of stone and has a square ground plan. It seems as if it is composed of three parts, of which the lower one is made of stone, the middle one is composed of niches, whereas the upper part is a roof. The part with niches is very diverse, because it also contained wooden statues. However, the statues have been removed and replaced by plaster casts. The plague spot is well looked after by the locals, who call it “Pild”
