Published: 12.7.2021
The village of Lošonec is located on the promontory of the Trnava Uplands. The mostly forested cadastral area of the village has an area of 2371 ha and is located at an altitude of 215-662 meters. The Smutná stream, which is a tributary of the Trnávka river, flows through the village.

The village of Lošonec is one of the relatively small villages with a population of over 550. The neighboring towns are the famous castle Smolenice (4 km) or the wine village Horné Orešany (5 km). The nearest larger city is Trnava, 20 km away. From the point of view of history, the area was inhabited as early as the period before the Great Moravian Empire and was first mentioned in the years 1332–1337 under the name Losinch. The ancestors left several buildings with great monumental value here as a memento.

Opposite the cemetery is the first sacral monument. It is a statue of St. Vendelín, which is made of stone and stands on a high quadrangular pillar with a cornice and dating from 1901.

The Roman Catholic Church of St. Anne with fortifications is listed as a national cultural monument in the central list of the monument fund. It is a Renaissance building probably built in the years 1600–1615. The side chapels date from 1753 and have cross crest vaults. On the west side is a brick tower with a pyramidal roof. The wooden missionary cross in front of the church bears two dates, 1997 and 2007.
