Religious Site Tourist Spot
Taste wines made in the centuries-long monastic tradition at Tvrdos Monastery. Legend has it that the 15th-century Orthodox monastery was constructed on the site of an earlier church that was erected by Roman Emperor Constantine and his mother, St. Helen. You can still see the fourth-century foundations of the ancient Roman church. The monastery houses a 15th-century stone cellar and a new, modern cellar. Try to recognize the traces of peaches, kiwi, and honey in white wines and cherries or figs in red wines. The monastery also treasures an important relic--the hand of an unknown saint, probably the queen mother of Serbian medieval kings Milutin and Dragutin.

  • The first traces of the temple are from the 4th century. The current Church is doing a very big impression on visitors. It is also a place on the intake of your own food and a well stocked shop with parking (low prices, you can pay by card). The path leading to the temple on the left side you can for free rent clothing to visit her with dignity!

  • Wonderful place!
  • Манастирски комплекс изгледа прелепо, нарочито првобитна црква са конаком и винским подрумом. Пре десетак година док још није било гужве, посетиоцима је био отворен простор око цркве и конака и, осим продавнице, није било других пратећих објеката. Посебну лепоту манастиру даје пространи врт,. Некада је ту био и сеник за одмор, са дивним погледом на Требишњицу.
  • Manastir je lijepo uredjen. Vinski podrum je odličan a cijeli kompleks odaje neku moćnu energiju.
  • Before a nice monastery.
