Staro Nagoricane Things to Do
This cell (also called kelia), indicating a single room, is opposite to the Church of St George, outside the walls of the Monastery of Staro Nagoricane.
The cell is partly built into the rocks, which form some of the walls.
There is a stone table in the small room.
According to the man who opened the Church of St George and this cell for us, Saint Prohor Pcinjski lived in this cell for 30 years. The man who opened the cell, insisted that we would leave some money there, which we considered a quite aggressive technique (The same man tried to sell us an over-priced booklet that he probably got himself for free as promotional material - be warned).
If you look carefully at the pictures, you will see a crutch standing against the wall. Allegedly, this crutch was left here by somebody who miraculously could walk again without the crutch after visiting the cell.
