Pameče (pronounced [ˈpaːmɛtʃɛ]) is a settlement in the City Municipality of Slovenj Gradec in northern Slovenia. The area was traditionally part of Styria. The entire municipality is now included in the Carinthia Statistical Region.
Pameče is the site of two known mass graves associated with the Second World War. The Fuks 1 and 2 mass graves (Slovene: Grobišče Fuks 1, 2) are located at the Hribernik farm (at Pameče no. 183), 5 m west and 20 m south of the house, respectively. They contain the remains of an unidentified number of victims, believed to be mostly Croatians.
The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint James (Slovene: sveti Jakob) and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Maribor. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1488. The current building dates to 1868. A second church on a hill north of the settlement is dedicated to Saint Anne and was built in 1530.
