Aladzha Monastery

Varna, Bulgaria
4.8 / 10
The 12th century rocky Orthodox monastery, currently in ruins. It is known that from the 4th century Christian hermits lived in the catacombs. The monastery lasted until the end of the XIV century, until it was destroyed by the Ottomans, but the monks continued to inhabit the caves for another four hundred years. Before, almost all grottoes were decorated with frescoes, but today they remained only in the monastery chapel.
