Mansion in Oplotnica « Castles

The Žice mansion was built between 1621 and 1631 by Carthusians from Žice, who dominated the area for 600 years. The mansion was their important economic centre. Its chambers were once lavishly decorated and equipped. A niche on the eastern exterior of the chapel holds a quality baroque sculpture of St. John the Baptist, which is believed to have been brought from the Charterhouse Žice after the First World War. The chapel deserves special attention, because of its well preserved stucco decorations. They are the most quality works of their kind in Slovenian Styria, closely associated with the tomb of Emperor Ferdinand II in Graz, because the stucco decorations of the crypt closely resemble those from Oplotnica. Once, the chapel had lavish equipment and numerous oil paintings. The forged fence is especially well known. It is the only piece left, because it was stored in the attic. The chapel also used to have an altar dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The mansion was completely restored in 2010 with the help of European funding.
