Veliko Tarnovo

Holy Virgin Monastery

  Arbanassi     more than a year ago
Situated at the upper entrance of the village, this working convent attracts many visitors and pilgrims on religious holidays. Erected in the Middle Ages, it was later destroyed by marauders and the low-lying modest present-day church dates from 1680. Its lovely frescoes, which are still intact, were painted in the 18th century. The main attraction is the silver-clad icon of The Virgin with the Three Hands which is said to work miracles and to which believers turn to this day when in need. Legend tells that the icon was buried by the nuns when fleeing their attackers and was later found by a shepherd boy who heard weeping coming from under the ground.
