Photographer's Note

The oldest written document about the Zavala monastery dates back to 1514. The monastery was erected by the members of the duke Hrabrena-Miloradović family that was building many foundations in Herzegovina in the XVI century. The church is nave and arched. The frescoes in the Zavala Monastery date back to 1619 and are an extremely valuable collection of art in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Their author is Georgije Mitrofanović, hilnadar monk, the most talented and educated Serbian painter of the XVII century. The new residences were erected in 1876. In 1886 a school attached to the Monastery was opened.
