St Simon the Tanner Monastery
Simon the Tanner was a craftsman saint who lived during the 10th century and the cave church that was dedicated to him seems as though it might last for 10 more.
Using a pre-existing cave and the slope that led into it, the current monastery seats 2,000 people around a central pulpit.
