The Church of St. Thomas
is the older of the two churches in Rateče
. The cemetery church with a belfry from the 14th century was mainly built in the Romanesque style
, with a Gothic
extension of presbytery.
The stations of the Cross in it were painted by the last Slovenian Baroque painter Leopold Layer
.The Rateče/Celovec manuscript
, which represents the second oldest preserved written record in the Slovenian language, is said to be written here.
