The medieval chapel St. John the Baptist (known as “the St. Yani Chapel”) in Assenovgrad dates from the same time as Bachkovo monastery (11th century). Perched on a hilltop in the western side of Assenovgrad, St. Yani chapel is part of an ensemble of nearby chapels and lends a medieval charm to this part of the town. A valuable wall painting of St. John the Baptist dating from 13-14th century was recently revealed and restored. The chapel is actually inaccessible from north and northwest directions because of its unique location. It has been built for a first time during 11-13 centuries. It is one of the most important national cultural monuments. The chapel was renovated in 2000.
