Legend of the Cross at Manastiro locality

About five hundred meters away from the village of Tavalichevo, in the Manastiro locality, under a centuries old Oak there is a cross dug into the ground. There used to be a monastery on that spot called Holy Mother of God and the local community gathered for service there.

When the monastery was burned down by the Ottomans, fear drove the people away from the holy spot and the services ceased.
