Makole (pronounced [ˈmaːkɔlɛ]) is a settlement and a municipality in northeastern Slovenia. It lies in the Dravinja Valley. Traditionally the area was part of the Styria region. It belonged to the Municipality of Slovenska Bistrica until 2006, when it became an independent municipality. The municipality is now included in the Drava Statistical Region. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1375 and was also granted market rights.[2]


The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Andrew and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Maribor. It is a Gothic building that was first mentioned in 1441. In the 18th century, it was restyled in the Baroque.[3]
