We enjoyed this small renovated church immensely because of its frescoes from the 12 century onward. One of them,behind the altar, is constructed from mosaic made from lapiz lazule. The caretaker has written a book about it which we purchased (in English) and she gave us a tour, her English is not good, but we could figure it out. She was intent on pointing out that the Macedonians consider this area to be the start of the Renaissance before Italy because of the more realistic paintings and the draping of the clothing. Also, look for Christ with wings, I had never seen such a portrayal before. Next door is a small icon museum with labels in English, very nicely done.
