Monastery Manasija is the endowment of the despot Stefan Lazarevic, the construction began at 1407., and it was completed at 1418. The monastery church is dedicated to the Holy Trinity. The whole complex has large walls around, which have served as a defence. It consisted of 11 towers, of which the tower of the towers, known as the Despot’s tower, stood out. Although only a third of the frescoes have been saved in the monastery, Manasije’s painting is one of the greatest achievements of medieval painting.
