Description

Commissioned in 1822, the building of the monastery goes back to the 15th century. Within the walls of the monastery, a Byzantine church -painted in a Neo-Byzantine style- finds its shelter together with a collection of valuable objects, silvery, old icons and books. Every year, on the Life-giving Spring feast (i.e., on Bright Friday), pilgrims carry the Icon of the Virgin Mary in a procession believed to “protect from drought.”

Dedication Day: “The Baptism of the Lord” (January 6)

This Objective is part of the circuit: Piatra Neamț – Bălțătești – Târgu Neamț
