Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Jul 13, 2017
The church was built in the years 1834 to 1837, replacing the building which was lost (like most of the monastery) in a fire in 1833. The church is well-known for its indoor and outdoor frescoes which were added by several masters in 1846. A large share of the monastery's collection of icons is shown inside the church.

This church was great to visit, however I think that you can visit the inside in less than fifteen minutes and devote more time to the frescoes outside (as well as the monastery compley in general).

You are not permitted to take pictures inside of the church. There is no problem however to take pictures of the outside frescoes.
