Tolsti Vrh (pronounced  [ˈtoːu̯sti ˈʋəɾx] ) is a settlement in the foothills of the Žumberak/Gorjanci range in the Municipality of Šentjernej in southeastern Slovenia. It is part of the traditional region of Lower Carniola and is now included in the Southeast Slovenia Statistical Region. [2]

The local church, built on a small hill in the centre of the settlement, is dedicated to Saint Roch (Slovene : sveti Rok). It was a well-known pilgrimage church built in 1713 in gratitude for the ending of a local epidemic of the plague. Its main altar dates to the late 18th century and the side altars are from the 19th century. [3]

On a hill south of the settlement are the remains of a second church. It was a Romanesque building that was abandoned in 1782 and partly demolished in 1808. [4]
