Hidden Treasures: Șinca Veche Monastery

Located 45 km from Brasov, the monastery Sinca Veche is a very special place. Next to the regular constructions, the monastery contains a church dug deep into the stone of the mountain. Unfortunately, at this moment, I do not have pictures of that area.

The exact date when the place got its holly character is not known, but it is said to be 7000 years old. The religious complex was first mentioned in official papers in the XII century and the church in the mountain is believed to have been built in the year 1742.
