Monastery Aladzha

Aladja Monastery, Aladja Monastery
Bulgaria, Golden Sands
Aladzha Monastery is an Orthodox rock monastery. Since the 4th century, Christian hermits have lived in caves carved into a sheer limestone rock. As a rocky monastic abode, the monastery finally took shape in the 12th century. At the end of the 14th century, after the conquest of Bulgaria by the Ottoman Empire, the monastery was destroyed, but hermits continued to inhabit the caves until the 18th century. Currently, the monastery is uninhabited, in 1957 it was declared a cultural monument of national importance. It is a branch of the historical and archaeological museum of Varna.

A beautiful quiet place, but if you traveled from far away and specifically to see it, you will be disappointed. After the earthquakes, a small rock shelf remained from the monastery and nothing else.
