Cave church (Ohrid - Macedonia)

Cave church

[August, 2011] 5 km towards Albania, away from the town Struga, north of Lake Ohrid in Macedonia is a place called Kalista. Here there is this cave church called St. Bogorodica. According to the guide, around 13th century, it was a trendy thing to do for monks to hide away from people’s living places and to stay in caves. In this complex, there remains a ‘room’, which seemed smaller than toilet cubicles. In other churches, taking photos was prohibited, so we were lucky that we could take some here.
