St. George Monastery

Near the village Paralovo (Паралово) is one of the most beautiful monasteries in Municipality of Novaci – St. George (Св. Ѓорѓи), widely known for its mansions.

In this temple, it is believed that one finger of the hand of St. George is hidden.

During the First World War, Paralovo village was situated on the front line (Macedonian Front) and most of the houses were devastated.

The same fate met the monastery whose quarters were completely destroyed and the church Saint George was badly damaged. The villagers were displaced in village Zhivojno, and after the war, they returned and rebuilt the village and monastery, which today is one of the most beautiful in the Bitola region.
