  • Turnu Monastery (Tower) is placed on the left side of Olt River about 2 km from Cozia Monastery, founded by Mircea cel Batrân King, from Călimanești City. Its name is coming from a tower built by Roma...  more »
  • Very close to Cozia monastery, on the opposite bank of the Olt River; only 2 kilometers and a half, although one and a half should be done by a lane of land, although aunque es is suitable for vehicles. It has a large car park at the entrance, and the visit is free. The Foundation of the monastery dating from 1676, formerly from Cozia monks lived in caves in the surrounding area; in the interior of the monastery we see a Hermitage carved into the rock. The Church is modern, as the original was destroyed in a fire; He has beautiful wall paintings. In general the entire environment is very nice, located in a small Gorge is an objective that we must not lose us, even more so by being so close to Cozia monastery. Currently reside in the 25 monks who live in the more abslouta austerity.
