Romanesque church in Haluzice was erected near Nové Mesto nad Váhom, in the Bošáca valley. First written record of the church dates back to 1299 mentioning the church‘s destruction by the army of Matúš Čák. Although nowadays there remain only the outer walls, with near cemetery and surrounding uplands they make unforgettable place with a unique atmosphere.
About 1 kilometer from the church you can find the Gorge of Haluzice (Haluzická tiesňava), created as a result of erosion activities of the Haluzice brook. Thanks to the “wild” vegetation and mysterious atmosphere the gorge looks like tropical forest. Today, the gorge is about one kilometer long, the surrounding walls reach a height of 50 meters and in some places it is 200 meters wide. However, it is constantly deepening and changing.
Lookout tower Hájnica is located on top of nearby hill (341 m), offering a nice view of not only the church but also the surrounding villages situated along the Bošáca valley, Beckov Castle, Považský Inovec and Trenčín Castle.
