The Church of Mary Magdalene, located in the village of Orešje, is supposedly very old, but written sources first mention it only in 1545.The present church building dates from 1653, as evidenced by the date on the floor wall. One of the bells was cast in 1696. In 1842 the church was enlarged and its nave re-vaulted. In the years 1895–1900, a bell tower was added to it and it was painted. The original main altar from 1665 was restored in 1902. Both side altars date from the second half of the 18th century. There is also a cemetery near the church.Holy Mass at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene is held every Sunday, and a larger ceremony is held on the day of the patron saint, July 22nd.
