ABOUT

The Presentation of the Holy Virgin Church is a domed single-nave basilica, and harmoniously reconciles two architectural styles, the Romanesque and the Byzantine (later know as the Raska School style). The three-sided apse is located in the east, while an extended narthex faces west; there are also vestibules on the north and the south. The facades were built with slabs of white marble; inside, the church is revetted with tufa blocks.
