Cave Churches of St. Erazmo

St. Erazmo church is located on the Ohrid – Struga road, 2km away from Ohrid.

The church is located in a small built up cavity on a steep cliff just above an early Christian basilica, dedicated to St. Erazmo from Lychnidos whose name is linked to the Christianization of the local population in the III century.
The oldest frescoes in the church are dating from the last decades of the XIII cent. The monumental figure of a Вуzantine emperor and the image of the patron of the church - St. Erazmo were painted in the first phase.
The frescoes of the Holy Mother of God, the „Office of the bishops, the representations of Holy Warriors, Sts Constantine and Elena and others belong the later phase.
On the hill above the Church of St. Erazmo, 200 meters along a narrow cemented road the Cave church St. Katherine (Св. Екатерина) is located, where also you will be amazed by the beautiful views towards the Ohrid Lake.
