Banjšice Plateau

Banjšice Plateau

The Banjšice Plateau ( _sl. Banjška planota, _it. Altopiano della Bainsizza) is a karstic plateau in western Slovenia, in the Goriška region. It is located north-west of the town of Nova Gorica, overlooking the Soča River. During World War One, the Italian and the Austro-Hungarian Army fought in the Eleventh Battle of the Isonzo on the plateau in August 1917.

The plateau was named after the village of Banjšice, which is most probably the oldest settlement on the plateau. The other settlements on this largely unpopulated area are: Bate, Grgarske Ravne, and Lokovec. Traditionally, the villages on the plateau used to gravitate towards Kanal ob Soči and partially towards Grgar and Solkan, but nowadays they are all included in the municipality of Nova Gorica, where most of the locals work.
