Jarčje Brdo (pronounced [ˈjaːɾtʃjɛ ˈbəɾdɔ]; in older sources also Jarče Brdo,[2] German: Jartschinberdo[2]) is a dispersed settlement in the hills between the Selca Sora and the Poljane Sora valleys in the Municipality of Gorenja Vas–Poljane in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia.[3]

The local church is dedicated to Saint Valentine. It was built between 1854 and 1857 on the site of an earlier church and has a triple nave. The belfry from the earlier church, dating to 1728, is preserved.[4]
