Backovo Monastery : Michelin's recommendations
Backovo Monastery, founded in 1083, is one of the largest monasteries in Bulgaria. Dear to the heart of the Bulgarians, it boasts some magnificent features. Must-sees include: the North courtyard, the splendid frescoes of the church of Our Lady (dating from 1643, more than 1 000 characters!), those of St-Nicholas's Church (painted by the icon artist Zahari Zograf between 1839 and 1841) and the murals decorating the ossuary. Do not miss the 12C church of the Holy Archangels and the extraordinary panorama painted in 1846 by Alexi Atanasov.
