This huge, three-aisle church stands atop a series of stone stairs at the old town’s base. With its unmistakable pink and blue bell tower, this church (built in 1844 on the site of a 9th-century shrine) contains icons and murals, including one depicting a sword-wielding Turkish soldier harassing chained and lamenting Bulgarian peasants.
