‘Prilep - St. Archangel Michael Monastery’


Back in Prilep and with another monastery.
The St. Archangel Michael Monastery is among the best religious orthodox centers in North Macedonia.

The story of the monastery begins back in the 10th century when an unknown disciple of St Clement, the creator of the Cyrillic alphabet, settled in some of the granite rocks in order to lead a solitary life.
Between the 11th and 13th century the church was several times destroyed and restored.
In 1861 it received its today’s appearance.
A sisterhood of five nuns is taking care about keeping the spiritual life of the monastery.
