  • The Turnu monastery is about 3 or 4 km from the most famous Cozia monastery. Is not far from the national road linking Ramnicu Valcea in Sibiu and precisely if you are travelling by car, proceeding from South to North, past Calimanesti and the famous Cozia monastery, it is necessary to cross the River on the spacious deck and follow its course North (left) and then fold right after about two km following the directions. A train station is located near the monastery (Ministirea Turnu in the search engine of the CFR) and is served by several regional from Sibiu, Ramnicu Valcea and Piatra Olt. You get off the train you must go south (right) and then left. The setting is very idyllic, the monastery is located slightly away from the River, has no fortifications and there is a lovely Church which, although it was built in ' 600, was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in the last century. The Church lacked the typical portico which is located in the churches of almost all other monasteries we visited. Another Church, more modern, you visit inside one of the buildings of the monastery, behind the first church on the right side. Elegant two-story porches buildings surrounding the left side the oldest church and fascinating are the caves used by hermits. There are comfortable shaded spaces for picnic. Although perhaps not are absolute masterpieces, probably because of the reconstruction due to the fire, remains a place of enormous charm, surrounded by vegetable gardens and not the walls, where witness real scenes of monastic life. Not to be missed, also because of the ease with which you can reach, even by public transport.
