Mass grave[edit]

Planinca is the site of a mass grave associated with the Second World War. The Ledenica near Planinca Mass Grave (Slovene: Grobišče Ledenica pri Planinci) is located in the Ledenica Shaft northeast of the village, in the northern foothills of Mount Krim. The grave contains the remains of undetermined victims.[3]


The local church is dedicated to Saint Thomas and belongs to the Parish of Preserje. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1386, but was in a ruined condition until it was reconstructed in 1989.[4]
