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.


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]
