One of many prominent buildings on the Town Square of Škofja Loka is Homan House.
Homan House used to be a community mansion established in three buildings.
The earthquake in 1511 badly damaged Škofja Loka, but later it was reconstructed and revived, including the Homan House. The date of its renovation is evident by the inscription 1529, engraved under mansion’s balcony, with a bearded face and the Duchy of Carniola (Vojvodina Kranjska) coat of arms.
On the west facade of Homan house, you can observe well-saved old paintings: frescoes of a soldier and of St. Christopher. They were discovered during the renovation in 1970.
Nowadays Homan house is a renowned public house, with the restaurant serving Slovenian cuisine and the coffeehouse (Kavarna Homan). On warmer sunny days, the guests can cool in the shade of a big 100 years-old lime tree.
