The Church of the Pârvești

It is a country church built in mediaeval style. Although erected in modern times, the craftsmen who built it preserved the tradition of mediaeval churches in the area. As local legends have it, the church was erected by a family of thieves who decided to turn to faith and they built the church in order to thank God for showing them the right way. The name of the family was Pîrveşti. The charm of this country church is given by the wooden roof, by the asymmetric finishing of the windows and by the geometrical figures painted with a trembling brush on the outside of the belfry tower.
