More info

The Latin Church is one of few buildings from pre-Nemanjic’s epoch, built in the middle of 11th century. It is located above the village of GornjiMatejevac, on Metoh hill and with its architecture and the Byzantine style, it completes the beauty of this area. The name “Latin” comes from merchants from Dubrovnik, Latins, who used it in the 16th century. It was built as a single-nave church in the shape of the cross with a narthex that was added later. Stone and bricks were alternately used for building and the facade was decorated with stone ornaments. Architectural shapes provided a significant place for this church in the history of Byzantine architecture.
