The Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour (Katedrallja e Zonjes Ndimetare) is Prizren's main Catholic church.

The history of the Italian inspired church dates back to 1870 when it was commissioned by the Archbishop of Skopje.

Inside the church, just above the main door a fresco of the Albanian hero Skenderbeg can be seen.

When we visited the church it was closed, but we got a key from a lady living just next to the church. Later a a local guy came to us and explained the interior of the church to us and told us about the frescoes.

Directions: The Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour stands at the eastern end of the street Papa Gjon Pali, just south west of Prizren's main square Shadervan.
