Wonderful frescoes that cover almost every inch of wall space! If you can read about the paintings theme of Mother of God before you visit you will have an easier time understanding the stories depicted. I spent over an hour inside working though several of the stories and saints.

Medieval church with extremely well preserved frescoes and icons. It was built in the 11th century and the frescoes are from the 16th century. The altar is said to be the original from the 16th century.
The church was dedicated to the Mother of God and all the scenes in it are thematically connected with the Mother of God.

Hats off and shoulders covered to enter. This place has strong history involving a tree that once stood here. I won't give it all away though. It's full of Byzantine style icons with saints and trinkets. Candles are lit for the souls who have passed on and I believe it might be the only fully functioning place of worpship on the island, I could be wrong. It's a stunning place to visit for a while if you're on the island and even if you're not religeous.

Amazing, beautiful, interesting church in Old Nessebar. Built in the 11th century. So well preserved. An astonishing amount off internal wall paintings in good condition. Small as churches go but so much detail it could take hours to explore fully.

This is one of the more beautiful churches in Nessebar and well worth a visit and there are many well preserved frescoes. The purchase of a guide book is helpful to understand the meaning of these pictures. Although this church is small it is well worth a visit.
