The Beautiful door was orginally from the iconostasis of the church of St. Mary of the village Sopik, Gjirokastra and was carved in 1832 by master Nikola Dibrani. Master Dibrani came from Magarova, Manastir (Bitola). Over the beautiful door is sculpted Episcopal miter, which is held by two birds. In the beautiful door are also sculpted dragons, eagles and floral motifs. The iconostasis of the church of St. Mary of Sopik is considered one of the masterpieces of the Balkans.
