This remote monastery lies in a magnificent mountain setting and has a wealth of historical artefacts.

The remote Monastery of Treskavec is 8km outside Prilep under the summit of the impressive Zlatovrv. It is a magnificent old complex of significant historical and cultural value that is in urgent need of renovation. The site is of such worth that it made the World Monument Fund’s 2006 top 100 most endangered sites. In addition to the value of the site itself, its remote setting is beautiful and earned itself a central role in Mančevski’s film Before the Rain.
