The monastery of Gracanica near Priština (Serbia) was built in 1321 as an endowment from Serbian King Milutin. The well-preserved building, with its five domes and rectangular ground plan in the form of a double cross, represents one of the most beautiful examples of Serbian medieval architecture. The monastery is decorated with narrative frescoes depicting King Milutin and Queen Simonida, the Virgin Mary, and the Assumption of the Holy Mother.
