Manasija is the Serbian Orthodox monastery, also known as the Resava Fortress. Founder is Despot Stefan Lazarevic. In 1407, the construction of the Resava complex began near the town of Despotovac. The complex consisted of the Church of the Holy Trinity, a transcription and translation school, a library, city walls and defensive towers. City walls were up to 3 meters thick with 11 high towers. The most dominant tower was Despotova. Deep trenches were dug around the city. Trenches with the monumental walls and towers, represented a modern system of protection. The only entrance inside the complex was through the great western gate. The monastery was one of the largest educational, religious, cultural center (the so-called Resava school) of medieval Serbia. During the Ottoman conquests, a large part of the monastery and library was destroyed. Only a few manuscripts have been saved. Many times throughout history, this monastery has been destroyed and rebuilt again.
