Remains of the necropolis of mediaeval tombstones

Rate >

At the entrance of the Church of the Archangel Michael, near Velimlje, there is a representative group of mediaeval tombstones (6 slabs, 2 caskets and one gabled tombstone). 

The slab-shaped tombstones have a grape vine leaf border, while the caskets have arcades and frieze pillars above them. The tall caskets are impressive in their size and beauty. On the lateral sides the caskets and gabled tombstones have arcades and pillars, a shield-and-sword motif and one has the image of a man on a horse. Mediaeval tombstones (stećci) with engraved inscriptions, are built in the existing churches.
