South of Šentjur rises the outstanding Rifnik Hill, the conical form of which adorns the Voglajna Valley with a special charm. The summit of this hill was settled from the very earliest times, with the deceased being buried on the hillsides or in the valley. Archaeological excavations have unearthed evidence of three different periods of prehistoric settlement dating from the Late Bronze Age to the Early Iron Age, but much has been reburied because a presentation from three different periods would be too chaotic. Today the remains of a late classical settlement are arranged 'on the mountain', as the natives proudly call it. The renovated parts include the foundations of a house, a wall with watch towers, the remains of two Early Christian churches and a large water cistern.
