Moldovita - the "narthex" ceiling


Church of the Annunciation - Moldovita Monastery  



The church was built in 1532 by  prince Petru Rares to replace his grandfather's old church, mentioned in  a 1410 time document and destroyed later under unknown circumstances.

It was painted in 1537, two years after Humor Monastery, by the same painter Toma.

It is one of the best preserved painted monasteries and one of the most charming religious locations  in Bucovina.

The collection of the museum of the monastery includes some remarkable old icons, religious books and objects.
