The Church of Saint Panteleimon in Gorno Nerezi, North Macedonia, is a small 12th-century Byzantine church located in a monastery complex. The church and monastery are dedicated to St. Panteleimon, the patron saint of physicians.

The church was constructed in 1164 as a foundation of Alexios Angelos, a son of Constantine Angelos. Although most of the structure’s original walls crumbled over the centuries, artists restored many of the beautifully colored frescoes, which can still be admired today.

Know Before You Go

The church is free to visit and open to the public.
