‘Frescoes of the Monastery of Treskavec’


The Monastery of Treskavec is situated on a rocky hilltop 8 km north of Prilep (not to be confused with the hill of Markovi Kuli).
It has been built in the 12th century and possesses a large collection of frescoes of which the oldest date from the 15th century.

Sadly it was largely destroyed by a fire in early 2010.
During my visit in the summer of 2018 the rebuilding was still in progress.
As a result, outdoor shots made little sense. There was work going on everywhere. One photo in the WS demonstrates this. So now I will show you mainly photos of the beautiful frescoes that have either not withstood undamaged the test of time.

Because of the many frescoes, a visit is still highly recommended. I also thought the surroundings were very beautiful.
No idea when the repairs will be finished.
Here you can see a picture of what the monastery once looked like:

I notice that a lot of TE members now show pictures with Christmas or New Year decorations.
Currently I have no such suitable photos.
So it will be these frescoes in Treskavec.
Anyway, I wish you all a Merry Christmas.
