Muta is a town and a municipality in the Carinthia region of northern Slovenia.[2]

The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Margaret (Slovene: Sveta Marjeta) and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Maribor. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1349. In the 17th century it was extended and widened.[3] There are two other churches in Muta. The church dedicated to John the Baptistin the Spodnja Muta area of the settlement is an 11th century Romanesque rotunda with an Early Gothic sanctuary added. Fourteenth-century wall paintings survive in the church and the wooden painted ceiling is from the late 16th and early 17th century.[4] The church on the banks of the Drava River in the south of the settlement is dedicated to Saint Peter and is a late Romanesque single nave building from the 13th century with various alterations over the centuries.[5]
