This church is a remnant of an old and powerful monastery complex, should be visited to understand the history of the city of Kurdjali, good guide needed however

Nicely reconstructed and refurbished, positioned like a fortress overseeing the Arda river. One of the must-sees in Kardzhali.

The foundation and lower parts of this church were found by incidence, after it had been buried for centuries. Now it is reconstructed completely and offers a beautiful and serene interior.
