Hôrka at Horné Vestenice was a guarded position to warn the surrounding settlements. Until the 13th century, the foundations of the Gothic Church of St. Petra, who later expanded to the Renaissance chapel two centuries later. After the construction of the new church, only the monastery was served.

At the end of July 1942 prof. Vojtech Budinsky-Krička in the village Horna Vestenice in the elevated area Hôrka remains of the sacral building - chapels. The remains of an above-ground murivaneveked stone structure with a rectangular ship and a trapezoidal northeast construction are places up to 130 cm high. Unique are the remains of the original painting. The origin of the construction is not yet clear.
