Above the Ribnica Valley in Nova Štifta stands the pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary. This octagonal Baroque church was finished in 1671. In the 18th century, the Sv. Jožef Chapel, decorated with a Langus painting, was built behind it, and the Holy Staircase with its marvelous frescoes was added. The interior of the church is adorned by golden altars and pulpit. In front of the church stand two 360-year-old linden trees, to one of which a viewing pavilion view has clung for 170 years.

At the homestead of Primož Trubar, the author of the first Slovene book and a leader of the Reformation movement in Slovenia, a memorial room has been arranged. Several times each year, art exhibitions, cultural and patriotic events, and medieval bookbinding workshops are held here. At the Trubar Homestead, you can see a well-preserved flour mill and a "Venetian" sawmill, while the main building houses a restaurant, art gallery, and the Trubar reading room.
