From Petrich, you need to head to the village of Gega. The monastery is located close to the border between Bulgaria and Macedonia.
The monastery was created in the 14th century. Its wall paintings were drawn in 1858. Today, the monastery is named a monument of culture.
From the bell tower you can enjoy Belasitsa Mountain and the view towards the villages of Chourilovo, Baskaltsi and Volmo. It was constructed in 1857.
Take a close look at the wall paintings. These feature a bipolar model. In the upper part, you will see the heavenly world. Beneath it, the artists have depicted earth that is entirely under the control of evil.
Chourilovski Monastery’s holiday is on May 6.
