Church of Sveta Bogorodica Perivlepta

Church in Ohrid

Just inside the Gorna Porta, this 13th-century Byzantine church, whose name translates as 'Our Lady the Most Glorious', has vivid biblical frescoes (newly restored in 2017) painted by masters Michael and Eutychius, and superb lake and Old Town views from its terrace. There's also an icon gallery highlighting the founders' artistic achievements.
