Trnava monastery

This interesting church is situated at the village of Trnava, near the Trnava River spring on the slopes of Mount Jelica.
It is dedicated to Blagovestenje – Holy Annunciation.

The monastery was erected on the site of the old one built by the Nemanjići’ s dynasty in the Middle Ages.

The monastery was restored in 1554.

It is of a great historical importance because it was in this church where the well  -know Hadzi – Prodan Rising started in 1814. The monks of the monastery took part in the rising, too.

A more recent renovation was done in 1837.

Only small fragments of painting were found during the conservation work.
