Popular for its fine frescoes by painted by masters Michael and Eutychius, the Church of Our Lady Perivlepta is the finest example of Byzantine art. The church dates back to the 13th century and was built by Progon Zgu- the son-in-law of Andronicus II who was a Byzantine Emperor.

If you are an art enthusiast, you can appreciate just how differently the frescoes are portrayed. Instead of drawing slim, stoic figures, the frescoes are drawn to show well-statured (even chubby) men and all of the paintings embrace vivid colours that have remained intact for more than 700 years! In a way, the artists created a standard of Byzantine art in this part of the world. The painters have signed their work in 20 different places around the church and if you can, try to spot them for the fun of it!

The main altar consists of a cross placed below the main dome. Notice the old windows, the wooden doorways and the use of natural light that helps to illuminate the artwork. A walk around the exterior to see the stone construction, completes the visit. An icon gallery located nearby showcases a variety of icons from the Ohrid and Balkan region that date back to the 11th century.
