The church St. Atanasij (Свети Атанасиј) is located in the Varoš settlement in Prilep near the churches of St. Dimitrij, The Holy Mother of God - Prečista and the monastery St. Arhangel Mihail.

There are no historic data when the church was built. The only information regarding the monastery is the mention of Archimandrite Leontij, who in 1622 donated a Psalter to the monastery Zograf on Mount Athos.
