In the vicinity of the gallery is the church of Sveta Bogorodica Perivleptos (St Clement’s Church of the Holy Mother of God Most Glorious) which dates from the 13th century. After that, carry on walking to Tsar Samoil’s Fortress which was named after the first Tsar of the Macedonian Slavs, who having conquered Byzantium, brought most of Macedonia under his rule.

Inside the church you can also see the tomb with St Clement’s relics.
