Saint Archangel Michael church
The road that leads to the Isar fortress, on the east side of the hill, under the Veterans Monument is the one, which reaches the church of Holy Archangel Michael.
During the middle ages, churches were built on all four sides of the fortress.
It is a small medieval church, built in the first half of the 14th century (1332 or in 1350) by the Protosevastes Hrelja and in 1334, Czar Dusan devoted it to Hilandar.
The church has one dome on a cross-shaped basis. The outside walls are decorated with blocks of processed stone and the only entrance is on the west side.
Its exterior presents you with a small, one-nave church without a cupola.
The church painting has preserved only fragments which very poorly depict the images of Tzar Constantine and of his wife Elena, as well as the image of a holy warrior.
