Close to Despotivac there is a famous Manasija monastery with St. Trinity church. Built between 1407 and 1418 by Stefan Lazarević - son of Grand Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović who lost his life on the Kosovo Polje battlefield in 1389. St. Trinity church has numerous frescoes from 15. century and a 19th century wooden iconostas (to our dismal at this time we visited the iconostas was under reconstruction) It is surrounded by a fortress with 11 towers. The church is a fine sample of late resava style. While the basic style is characteristic for Byzantine architecture, it is also adored with numerous details (observe the windows!) characteristic for Central European gothic architecture as well. It is either a very short drive or a long walk from Despotovac city center.
