St Barbara is a small church from the 19th century, although there are records about an older church from the 18th century on this location.

The church is dedicated to the martyr St Barbara, who suffered to death for Christ's faith in 306 and whose relics are in Kiev.

In the yard of St Barbara a road sign with the name Lychnidos (the old name of Ohrid) was found.

The church can be found between the church St Sofia and the Roman Amphitheater on the street Ilindenska.

Previous years the church was always closed and we did not see the inside. In 2012 we found out that the man from the Icon Gallery has the key of this church. He told us that his grandfather had build the church. He called somebody else to keep an eye at the Icon Gallery and we met him soon after with his sun at the Church of St Barbara. His son may be the next caretaker of the church!

It is a good habit to leave some money or buy some candles. In this case, maybe just leave some money because the candles will be extinguished after you leave the church in order not to cause a fire if there is nobody around...
