Church of Sveta Bogorodica Perivlepta

Church in Ohrid

Just inside the Gorna Porta (Upper Gate), this 13th-century Byzantine church whose name translates as 'Our Lady the Most Glorious' has vivid biblical frescoes 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. At the time of research, the church was in the midst of restoration work to protect the frescoes and the opening hours were eratic.
