Church of Sveti Spas

The Church of Sveti Spas (Holy Saviour) is located in the UNESCO World Heritage listed historic city of Nesebur. This small stone church was built by the Bulgarians in 1609. Because it was constructed during Ottoman rule, it sits below ground level. The tombstone of Byzantine princess Mataissa Cantacuzina was once located at the church, but it has been moved to Nesebur’s Archaeological Museum. The church is now a museum preserving its incredible wall paintings of scenes of the Life of Christ.

The following is a collection of photos I took at the church:
