Monastery on the hill

Trabzon, Turkey 40°41′31″N 39°39′28″E

Probably the oldest Christian Monastery in Southeast Europe. Currently the monastery is basically abandoned. The Monastery is based on the cliffs above the Turkish city of Trabzon which is located on the shore of Black Sea. This monument is a MUST for everyone who visits Turkey. On the other side it is not that popular among tourists.
