serves as a treasure trove of historic sites and monuments, set in a remote river valley surrounded by sloping limestone faces. Ancient fortresses and monasteries of Christian sects dating from the 10th to 14th centuries dot the valley, and were also carved into the limestone outcrops. The impressive cave monastery was carved into the rock in the 13th century by Orthodox monks, and was inhabited by the monks until the 18th century. Walk around this ancient site and take in the atmosphere of solemnity, climb the hill and the cliffs, and survey the valley below you.

Just before the village there is a building that doubles as a ticket to access the entire site, and which also houses a small museum. Then you leave the car and you go to discover the Hill, watching the slow flow of the River in the valley below. The two monasteries are clearly visible and pleasant to visit. However, Council also has a walk in Butuceni, discovering the Moldovan rural architecture (there is also a small House-Museum to visit for free), the pretty coloured houses, Wells (water is piled high, often there is also a glass to drink!) and the doors of the houses, each different, each with its own pattern. Nice!
