Coming about with a new content all the time, in today’s article, we will be talking about a significant heritage in the eastern black sea of Turkey: Sumela Monastery in Trabzon province.
Sumela Monastery is a Greek Orthodox Monastery which was dedicated to Virgin Mary. Built on steep rock cliffs on the skirts of Black Mountains (Karadaglar), Sumela Monastery in Trabzon is a large complex including a kitchen, guest rooms, library, several chapels, students rooms and more. It is among the most historic and oldest monasteries in the christian world. It is situated at 1200 metres above the sea level and faces the Altındere valley. The monastery is as old as one thousand years and said to be built by two monks. In the 18th century, most of its parts renewed and some walls were decorated with frescoes. These frescoes illusrate the biblical scenes of Christ and Virgin Mary and it is worth seeing as they look still fresh and magnificent. Sumela Monastery is about 45 km from the center of Trabzon and can be reached easily by private car or minibuses. Daily exclusions with professional guidance are also available. But Unfortunately, the Sumela Monastery in Trabzon is now closed for restoration work and will be reopened in 2018 for visitors and pilgrims.
