At the beginning of the 18th century the Austro-Hungarian army supporting the most criminal religion in the world - the Roman Catholic one - destroyed the Romanian churches with cannons. Several Romanian monks took refuge in a cave they had enlarged over time - it was a hidden place of worship of the Romanians persecuted by the Austrian and Hungarian invaders. The cave has no geological or speleological importance; no archaeological or paleontological discoveries were made. Any other fantasy information that is presented to you is just naive stories designed for idiot children and women. On the hill, a little above, a monastery of nuns was recently built, dedicated strangely to a Greek monk named Nektarios. You can pay a visit there only if you have been first to all the interesting and beautiful objectives in the area.

We would have skipped this historic and peaceful place had our guide not recommended it. Don't miss it. You will find it peaceful and solemn. When you see how people carved caves to house a church when orthdoxy was banned, you learn how much faith means to people deprived of it. Locals say the water at the spring is special, so bring a bottle to get some. But if you are lucky enough to be present when Mass is being said, soak in the sights and sounds. Worth a visit, even a detour.

This peaceful place is inviting to meditation... It is worth a detour. Not to be missed: the water spring, it is refreshing and clean - take some with you for the rest of your trip. Note: probably not wheelchair accessible, there are quite a few stairs to climb.
