‘Ohrid - Church of Sveti Jovan at Kaneo’

The picture of Ohrid that most people recognize is that of the church of Sveti Jovan (Saint John the Theologian), built on the cliffs above the lake at Kaneo, a short walk from the old town.
The church seen from an elevated position with the lake in the background is the must-take photo for many visiting Ohrid.

And yet here I show one taken from a different angle.
The reason for this is that I’m not 100 percent satisfied with my result of the 'classic' photo.
Secondly, I like this composition very much and after all, during my visit of the church there was no one else who took a picture in the same spot.

Two more photos in the WS.

From the Bradt Travel Guide - Macedonia:

The church of Sveti Jovan was built in the 13th century by an unknown benefactor.
It shows signs of both Byzantine and Armenian influence.

From https://www.spottinghistory.com/view/11254/church-of-st-john-at-kaneo/ :

Documents detailing the church property suggest that it was built before the year 1447.
According to archaeologists, some time before the rise of the Ottoman Empire.
Restoration work in 1964 led to the discovery of frescoes in its dome.
A fresco of Christ Pantocrator can be seen in the dome and other frescoes on the walls.
