Mânăstirea Arnota – Arnota Monastery

Istoricul manastirii:

Manastirea Arnota este ctitorita de Matei Basarab in 1633-1634, cu hramul “Sfintii Arhangheli Mihail si Gavriil”, pe temelia unei biserici mai vechi, fiind situata la 37 km de Ramnicu Valcea in comuna Costesti, aproape de Manastirea Bistrita. Conform unei legende, Matei Basarab a zidit manastirea aici deoarece, inainte de a fi domn, gasise scapare in aceste locuri, ascunzandu-se in niste stufarisuri, fiind urmarit de turci.

Este foarte greu de ajuns, datorita cotei ridicate unde se afla. In prezent accesul auto este favorizat de soseaua de acces a carierei de calcar existenta langa lacas. Studiile au constatat ca este construita pe locul unde au mai existat biserici.

History monastery:

Arnota Monastery is founded by Matei Basarab in 1633-1634, dedicated to “St. Archangels Michael and Gabriel”, the foundation of an earlier church, situated 37 km from Ramnicu Valcea Costesti village, near Bistrita Monastery. According to legend, Matei Basarab monastery built here since before the King, had found refuge in these places, hiding in some bushes, being chased by the Turks.

It is very difficult to reach due to high rate location. Road access is currently favored access road to the existing limestone quarry near the sanctuary. Studies have found that is built on the site where there were churches.
