Stop At: Tvrdos Monastery, Trebinje Bosnia and Herzegovina
Speaking of Tvrdoš in otherwise brief reviews, our historians considered it enough to say that it was a monastery "from the Middle Ages" and known as the Trebinje monastery. However, according to the folk tradition which was, in fact, relatively late written, the Treasury monastery was founded by the Holy Constantine and his mother Jelena, and then, after being demolished and deported, became the lord of King Sergei Milutin in the late XIII or early XIV century. The basic restoration in 1509 was carried out by the metropolitan of Trebinje Visarion I.
