In the middle of the Volče's field on the right bank of the Soča river is located a church of St. Danijel, whose name day is on July 21st. A wooden church, built on the site of the pagan shrine, is supposed to be built before the year 900. Later, it was built of stone and after a while also the bell tower was added, separated from the church. The church was consecrated in 924. Around the year 1500 it was slightly updated. The former old-parish church with a Romanesque base (aisle and a bell tower) consists of a triangular concluded netted arched Gothic presbytery, wide aisle and a bell tower. In 1695, when the church of St. Lenart was completed in the heart of Volče village, St. Danijel church was left only as a graveyard church, where originally Christians were buried from all over the Upper Soča valley, the Idrijca and Bača valley, as well from the Slavia Friulana (Benečija) and even from Bohinj. In the World War I it was damaged and later restored. Beside the church stands also a monument dedicated to the fallen locals in World War I, who fought as soldiers of Austro-Hungarian Empire on the eastern front in Galicia or the southeast front in Serbia.
