Senovo (pronounced [sɛˈnɔːʋɔ] or [sɛˈnoːʋɔ]) is a settlement in the Municipality of Krško in eastern Slovenia. It developed into a large settlement after its brown coal mine began to operate in 1839, but especially in the early 20th century.[2] The mine closed in the second half of the 1990s.[3] The area is part of the traditional region of Styria. It is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Lower Sava Statistical Region.[4]

The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Christ the Saviour and belongs to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Celje. It was built in 1975 and has a square floor plan with a slanted roof and a separate belfry.[5]
