Kalishta Monastery

In one of the buildings at the monastery there is a chapel (para-ekklisia) built and fresco-painted in 2002 and dedicated to St. Theodore the Tyro. The monks at the monastery use it in the winter period to perform their everyday prayers. This chapel and the whole building are under the canopy of a very old tree – maple, which has a central place in the monastery. It is 645 years old, and people believe its age corresponds to the settling down of the first monks at this place.
There is a spring under the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul built in 1991.
In the vicinity of the monastery Kalista, five-minutes walk away from the monastery buildings, there is embedded in the rocks, the cave church dedicated to the Alexandrian archbishop Athanasius. It contains the biggest set of medieval painting in Struga region.
Cave church of St. Athanasius is built in the 13th century: authentic in its special appearance and rare beauty, non-intrusive and an everlasting witness of the people from this region.
The natural beauty of this monastery complex, ennobled – with the graceful interventions of the people seeking for and finding God, is enriched with an un-quenching love of the brotherhood at the monastery.
In accordance with their own strength and spiritual practice, they pray for health and salvation for all the visitors to the monastery.
