St. Jovan Kaneo is beautifully situated on a hill outside the town of Ohrid on Lake Ohrid. It's a short hike up and a beautiful view. The church itself is nice looking but can only be viewed (free) from the outside.

Small chapel at the tip of a spur into the lake. The chapel is OK but the views are splendid. Worth the steep climb but not for the infirm!!
