MONASTERIES

STS KYRIK AND YULITA MONASTERY



STS KYRIK AND YULITA MONASTERY was in all likelihood built before the 14th century. The earliest architectural monument in it is the fountain dating from 1696. Repeatedly set on fire by the Ottoman Turks, the monastery was restored to its present-day appearance after 1835. The main church was built about 1845 by Yugovo masters and was painted by Alexi Atanassov from Negoush in 1847-1850. The iconostasis and the church furniture are impressive pieces of skilful fretwork. The monastery treasures wonderful icon-paintings by Zahari Zograph and other Revival Period painters as well as silver and copper church plates of high artistic value.
