The Church of St. Panteleimon in Gorno Nerezi is a small 12th century Byzantine church located in a monastery complex. The church and monastery are dedicated to St. Panteleimon, the patron saint of physicians.

Why you should visit it

The frescoes in the church are famous examples of Comnenian Age Byzantine Art, depicting scenes from the Passion of Christ. The coloring, dramatic composition and purity in expression displayed in the frescoes are outstanding examples of Macedonian medieval monumental painting in the later 12th century.
