Old and off the beaten path Apr 05, 2011
Far off the beaten tourist path, this church is connected to the monastery which has been around since the twelfth century. The interior is a little bit of a shock to the senses, as there is just so much modern looking brickwork that makes the church look younger than it is and as if very little money has been poured into maintenance. You have to work really hard to see the faintest traces of frescoes or old plaster work here, which give you a real impression of the age and former grandeur of the building. Fortunately it is under heavy restoration and hopefully its treasures will be better placed to benefit future generations. t
