You will discover here one of the most blessed hermitages of the place where secluded hermits from afar humbled in prayer, over the years. Here, in Atanase’s Clearing, bishop Ghedeon of Huşi commissioned a hermitage in 1655, which was rebuilt between 1824-1826, of river stone and brick, with the endeavour of Metropolitan Bishop Veniamin Costache. The new church was built in the Classical Moldavian style, and the iconostasis, carved in lime-tree wood, is gilded.
