Treskavec

 

 

The Monastery of Treskavec (Macedonian: Манастир Трескавец), or St. Bogorodica, is a monastery situated on the rocky Mount Zlatovrv, 8 km north of Prilep, in the Republic of Macedonia. Built in the 12th century, it currently has only one monk. The monastery possesses a large collection of Byzantine frescoes.

The oldest remaining date from the 15th century. It was rebuilt in the 14th century by Stephen Uroš II Milutin of Serbia and Stephen Uroš IV Dušan of Serbia. In mid 16th century it was renovated by Duke Dimitrije Pepić of Kratovo. However, the monastery was destroyed by a fire in the early 2010s and, apart from the church, it is now in ruins. As of 2015, no restoration work has been launched by the Macedonian government.
