The Church of the Visitation of the Mary (Slovene: cerkev Marijinega obiskanja) is a Roman Catholic pilgrimage church under the authority of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Ljubljana, located on Rožnik Hill in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Architecture[edit]

The Baroque building was rebuilt in 1740 according to plans by Candido Zulliani (1712-1769). It was damaged by artillery fire during the Napoleonic siege of Ljubljana. After the 1814 renovation it has the Neoclassic facade.[1]
