Kalenic Monastery is located in the central part of Sebia, near the village of Kalenic. Kalenic Monastery, with its architecture and murals paintings, ranks among the finest monuments not only of the Morava style, but of Serbian art in general. Its patron was Lord Bogdan, a high official at the court of Despot Stefan. The monastery church was built between 1407 and 1418.

Its exterior is very picturesque with its decorative arrangement of white marble blocks and red bricks. Kalenic is also famous for its low-relief ornamentations above the doors and windows which include birds, gryphons and lions. Kalenic frescoes, delicate and harmonious in their colouring, are highly reminiscent of their contemporaries in Russian painting, especially the work of Andrei Rublev.
