Erzelj (pronounced [ɛɾˈzɛl]) is a village in the hills west of Vipava in the Littoral region of Slovenia. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1275.[2]

Churches[edit]

There are two local churches in the settlement, belonging to the parish of Goče. Both are 15th-century buildings standing on Tabor Hill, and both were originally designed in the Gothic style and in the 18th century redesigned in the Baroque style. On the top of the hill stands St. Michael's Church, whereas at the foot of the hill stands St. Lawrence's Church.
