The church is dated in late 13th-early 14th century and was served as catholicon (main church) to a Byzantine monastery. Distinguished by its ornate external masonry and internal murals with themes from the Gospel, the miracles of Jesus, etc., which were plastered by the Turks when the church was converted into a mosque. The hagiographies (frescoes) followed by the Macedonian school of iconography, where the human body is shown strong and robust, have the strength to captivate the hearts of visitors with their power and intensity.
