The St Clement´s Monastery Church, finished in 2002, is dedicated to Saints Clement and Pantelejmon. Close to the new church are the ruins of the monastery school that Clement built on the ruins of the early 5th-century basilica at Plaosnik. He even had built his own tomb into the church, in which he was buried in 916. Almost 150 graves found at the church show that it was also an hospital. The foundations of the 5th-century basilica have been preserved in front of the new church.

The church and the ruins are part of a trip through Ohrid that can be found on my Ohrid page, see the link below.
