Breginj mural

The Tolmin Museum's art collection consists of numerous works of art originating from or associated with the Soča Valley. It includes several murals, wall paintings made on freshly applied or wet lime plaster. All of them are sacral, and most came to the museum after the Friuli earthquake in 1976. At that time, the Soča Valley underwent an extensive earthquake reconstruction, in which many older and severely damaged objects were demolished or completely transformed.

The earthquake mostly damaged the settlements in the Breginjski kot, where the buildings were built in the typical Venetian‑Slovenian architectural style. The facade of house number 140 in Breginj used to be covered with a mural depicting Mary Help of Christians. When the unknown painter completed his work, he wrote down the year 1889 next to the title of the three-part mural, which is an impressive three metres long.
