Church in Babna Polica

The local church on the northern edge of the settlement is dedicated to Saint Anthony the Hermit and belongs to the Parish of Stari Trg.[4] It was first mentioned in written sources dating to 1403. The date on the door casing, 1589, indicates a late 16th-century rebuilding of the original church. The main altar dates to 1716.[5]
