Belo (pronounced [ˈbeːlɔ]) is a small settlement in the Municipality of Medvode in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia.[2] In the past it was known as Nawelim in German.[3]

Cultural heritage[edit]

Several structures in Belo are registered as cultural heritage:

  • The farm at Belo no. 1, known as the Lenart farm (Slovene: pr' Lenart), consists of a single-story stone house with a 16th-century foundation; the year 1858 is carved into the door casing. There is a cottage bearing the year 1827; this was a building used by a retired farmer that continued to live on the farm. Other structures include a granary with a cellar, a stone barn with a mow, a beehouse, a fruit-drying shed, and a hayrack.[4] There is also a plaque on the house commemorating the communist people's hero Lizika Jančar (a.k.a. Majda; 1919–1943), who was shot in Belo on 20 March 1943.[4][5]
  • The house at Belo no. 2 stands on the eastern edge of the settlement, east of the farm at Belo no. 1. It is a two-story stone house from the end of the 20th century completely reconstructed from older architectural elements brought from elsewhere, including a door casing from green tuff, window casings, and beamed ceilings.[6]
