Granary (Kašča) is one of the best preserved medieval buildings in Škofja Loka, an impressive structure, concealing an underground restaurant. It has a shape of an irregular rectangle, with 2 doors and 39 windows.
In medieval times, it was, besides Loka Castle, the most important building in Škofja Loka. Made of stone and with iron bars on the windows, it used to be a part of the defensive walls. It was also a building in which the feudal landlord stored the tributes paid by his vassals. Here they stashed cheese and grain (mainly oats, wheat, and rye), mostly from Sora Plains.
Granary suffered an extensive damage in 1511’s earthquake, but because of its significance, Bishop Philip had it rebuilt and restored in two year’s time. On the south facade, you may see a proof – a stone plaque with the coat of arms. Since then, the Granary’s appearance didn’t change much and in 1963, it was declared a cultural monument.
