The monastery of Manasija, also known as Resava, was founded by Despot Stefan Lazarević in the first decades of the 15th century. Its church dedicated to the Holy Trinity is among the finest examples of the Morava school of architecture. The interior of the church was painted by experienced and skilled painters, as can be discerned from the preserved frescoes. The monastery was also an important literary and scriptorial center, owing to the efforts of its brethren and Despot Stefan himself. Following his death in 1427, Despot was buried in the monastery.
