The Etropole Monastery was established in the Middle Ages (1158). It is famous for its limestone base due to the limestone with which the monastery’s church was built. The legend says that the holy cloister’s existence may have been closely related to the name of the hermit Ivan Rilski, who had settled in one of the caves in the ‘Varovitets’ region before choosing solitude life in Rila. Nevertheless, the local people of Etropole declared the place holy and laid the foundations of the present-day monastery.
Etropole “St.Trinity” monastery was one of the biggest literacy centres at Bulgarian lands in XVI and XVII century as the popular Etropole calligraphic and art school was established there. Here is the tranquil place where many Bulgarian writers, artists have done much work for the preservation of Bulgarian culture and literature during turbulent times.
When the present-day monastery church “St.Trinity’ was constructed in 1858, the monk Hrissant found in the ruins of the old church a plate with an inscription clearly showing the year of the establishment of the sanctuary place-1158. The plate was built in the foundations of the newly-built temple.
Repeatedly Etropole Monastery was the hideout of the Bulgaria’s Apostle of Freedom Vassil Levski and it is still preserved.
