White, old marble block is standing near the Town tower. It is carved and decorated with famous singer and musician Orpheus who is looking for her wife Eurydice. Always open and free. You can find something similar just in Šempeter.

The tombstone is right in Slovenski Trg in front of the city clock tower. It's fairly eroded with a face, some figures and a few animals discernible. It also suffers from pollution.
