Manastir Manasija (Resava) je jedan od najznačajnijih spomenika srpske srednjovekovne kulture i najznačajnija građevina koja pripada takozvanoj „Moravskoj školi“.
Nalazi se na oko 30 kilometara od autoputa Beograd-Niš, blizu Despotovca.
Manastir je podigao despot Stefan Lazarević, poznat i kao Visoki Stefan, čije se mošti,po mišljenju nekih stručnjaka, nalaze u južnom delu crkve,ispod bele mermerne ploče.
Gradnja je trajala između 1407. i 1418. godine.
Odmah posle osnivanja, Manasija je postala kulturni centar despotovine.
Njena „Resavska škola“ bila je prepisivačka radionica i bila je izvor pisanih dela i prevoda i posle pada despotovine, kroz ceo 15. i 16. vek.
Manasija kompleks je proglašen spomenikom kulture od izuzetnog značaja u 1979, a zaštićen je zakonom Republike Srbije.
