There are a few religious buildings to be visited in Prijepolje.

The church of Davidovica is dedicated to the Baptism of Christ, and the monastery was built by the monk named David, whose grandfather was Stefan Nemanja, the Serbian Prince. The monastery was active up until the 17th century. During the 20th century excavation, an older building was found under the church. It was most likely the 6th-century Roman basilica.
There was also a tombstone that was related to the 14th-century Sebian Princess Milica’s father. In total, eight graves were discovered here which were believed to be the resting place of the famous Jugović brothers. They died as heroes during the Kosovo Battle in 1389.
