Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos

more than a year ago
One of the oldest churches in Ohrid, this magnificent structure was built in 1295 and is particularly interesting for the frescos that lie within. Among the many outstanding works painted here are originals by Michael Astrapas and Eutychios, 13th-century painters from Thessaloniki whose signed works literally take your breath away. Known to many locals as the Macedonian Sistine Chapel due to the amazing images on the domed ceiling, the church is also home to small collection of black and white photographs depicting Ohrid during the Ottoman period. Across the courtyard is the truly outstanding Icon Gallery.
