Our next stop will be Monastery of St. John the Baptist ( Jovan Bigorski). The monastery church is dedicated to St. Jonh the Baptist. According to the monastery's 1833 chronicle, it was built in 1020 by Ivan I Debranin. The Ottomans destroyed the monastery in the 16th century. The monastery was restored in 1743 by the monk Ilarion, who also built several monk cells. Later, in the period from 1812 to 1825 the monastery was expanded by archimandrite Arsenius. Among the donors there is also a mention of a monk Iov, recognized by some researchers as the future educator Yoakim Karchovski. One of the most valuable treasures of the monastery is the iconostasis created by Petre Filipovski Garkata from the nearby village of Gari. This iconostasis is considered as the most beautiful and most valuable wood-carved iconostasis. Another valuable monastery treasure is an icon dating from 1020 with supposedly miraculous healing power. Our tour will finish with visit of church of St George the Victorious church in Rajcica near Debar. In this all-female monastery, from the 11th century, a piece of the cross of Jesus is kept and a small part of the hand of Saint George the Victorious. Arrival back in Ohrid in the evening.
