We visited two different monasteries built within rocky cliffs.
The first were the rock monasteries of Ivanovo, Bulgaria. These were created in the 13th century. There are numerous "rooms" carved out of the limestone cliffs. Some were meant to be chapels. Others were sleeping chambers.
A crack has appear in the ceiling. It cuts through some of the frescoes.
There are a number of small chapels tucked up high above the parking area.
I was surprised that the bathroom has not been updated with a more modern toilet.
