  • One of the monasteries situated in the District of Gorj, in a spectacular landscape, at the entrance to the Olteţului Gorge, which separates the Parang of Carpathian Mountains. It began to be built in 1505 and works lasted almost two hundred years, until 1700. His paintings belong to the brancovenesco style, and are unique in the country; particularly interesting that we found on both sides of the porch of the Church, which include representations of Mount Athos monasteries. The interior of the Church paintings are impressive; dating from 1713. The enclosure is fortified; Once inside of it, through a door we accede to a second site, where we find the small church of St. Nicholas, built in 1732 and also profusely decorated. The monastery can be visited daily 09.00-17.00 hours. The entrance is free. There is ample free parking outside the entrance to the enclosure door, although we will have to walk 200 metres to reach the Church.
