In 1332, they built a church dedicated to St. Archangel Michael.
The second church, built in 1341, was dedicated to St. Nikola, and a few years later, the third church - which has been preserved in its original form until the present day.
The last church dedicated to St. Vasilie, was located on the north side of the fortress, and it was built in 1337.
