  • Twenty years ago it was in ruins this magnificent example of Byzantine 11th century monastic architecture, today thanks to a slow and loving recovery returned to live and Saint John, the Reaper (Therestis) will certainly be pleased. Do not hide a certain admiration for the Romanian Orthodox community of Transylvania that has recovered and now lives there by opening it to the public. The Interior was once completely collapsed, but the sanctuary with the handsome drum cupolato, was rebuilt and by entering you can admire a magnificent new iconostasis. Note the outside portions of plaster frescoes that tell us that once all the exterior was painted, something exceptional and unique monastic Byzantine architecture. I highly recommend joining the monastic area covered, both arms and legs and don't talk loudly. Beautiful and not to be missed!

  • Very nice this monastery. I got there from Bivongi is via an a bit dilapidated, but the monastery is well worth a visit. The highlight is the exterior of the structure, the Interior consists of an anteroom, say, and the environment of worship itself. During the visit I found monks trying to pray. Nice small village formed by houses of monks, beautiful throughout the area by stylus up

  • A beautiful monastery, well tended by the orthodox rumanian monks that replaced the greek ones. A peaceful place with amazing views on the mountanis around.
