Gaberje (pronounced [ˈɡaːbɛɾjɛ]) is a village in the hills south of the Vipava Valley in the Municipality of Ajdovščina in the Littoral region of Slovenia. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1367.[2]


The name of the settlement was changed from Gabrje to Gaberje in 1987.[3]


The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Martin and belongs to the Koper Diocese.[4] Its door casing bears the date 1670, which is the date of extension and renovation of a much older church on the site.
