Leskoec Things to Do: 5 reviews and 18 photos
The Church of St Spas (The Holy Savior) lies uphill from the churches of St Toma and St Nikola in the village Leskoec.
It is located on the local graveyard.
The Church of St Spas lies on the slope of Mount Petrino. It was built by the people of the village. There is an inscription mentioning more than 20 names as founders of the church. Two founders had a special role, Tode and his wife Bulka. They are painted in the frecoes.
St Spas was built in 1462 and renovated in 1898. The frescoes also date from the 15th century.
An interesting fresco shows St Clement in full size, holding a model of the village. The only other similar portrayal of St Clement can be found in the Lesser Physician Saints Church (Mali Sveti Vraci), also named the Church of Saints Cosmas and Damian, in Ohrid.
