Description

Church of St. John at Kaneo, Ohrid, Macedonia

Why It's Interesting

The church is somewhat out of the way even for visitors to Ohrid. It was probably built in the 13th century before the Ottomans reached Macedonia. The church is tiny inside but has beautiful frescoes, many centuries old.
