Sts. Peter and Paul Monastery

The construction of Church “St. St. Peter and Paul” started in 1644 (according to the inscription inside the church). During its renovation in 1923 there were found wall-paintings, some of which present the images of Mathew Besaraba and his wife Elena. The building is oriented with its longer axes along the horizontal of the terrain, so its southern wall hangs above a ditch. Because of the characteristics of the site the yard of the church extended northwards, this under normal circumstances contradicts the tradition. The church was digged into the earth. It is a cultural monument together with the iconostasis and the wall-paintings.
