Keslik Monastery : Michelin's recommendations
Hollowed out in the 13C, Keslik Monastery, known as the Monastery of the Archangels, has retained two churches and its refectory. The Black Church comprises two parallel naves, both of which end in an apse. Unfortunately the frescoes in this church have been blackened with smoke over the centuries and are difficult to make out. To one side lies the refectory, a huge room which could house 100 people and which is divided in two by arcades. Dug out from the rock in the 9C, the Church of St Stephen is situated 50m from the monastery. The most beautiful frescoes, painted in shades of bright yellow and orange, can be seen in this church.
