In the mid-19th century, living quarters for monks were added, and when the Ottoman Empire fell, a small bell tower was built. Afterwards, head to the Osogovo Monastery, dating from the 11th century and hidden in lush forests surrounded by the Osogovo Mountains. The monastery is considered one of the most beautiful in Macedonia.
