Pevno is the site of a mass grave from the period immediately after the Second World War. The Matjaž Cave Mass Grave (Slovene: Grobišče Matjaževa jama) is located on a steep slope 400 m west of the village of Pevno. It contains the remains of Home Guard prisoners of war that were held at Loka Castle and murdered between 25 and 30 May 1945. It may also contain the remains of a group murdered before the end of the war.[3][4]
