The church “St. John Aliturgetos” also called “St. Ivan the Unconsecrated” is located in the southern part of the Old Town of Nessebar, above the coast.
According to legend, the church was not consecrated at all, as one of the workers died during construction. At the same time, according to some sources, services were held in the church. It was built in the XIII-XIV century.
Although not well preserved, the church of St. John Aliturgetos marks the peak stage in the construction of religious buildings during the pre-Renaissance period of medieval Bulgaria.
It measures 18.5 x 10.25 m. The most characteristic of it are the facades. Here the painting style has reached its highest development. All of them are designed in different ways, the most beautiful of which is the eastern facade.
