About Pangarati Monastery

In 1460, St. Simeon the Pangarati built its first wooden church, dedicated to St. Demetrius, but it was burned by the Turks in 1476.

It seems that, during the expedition of Mahomed II, in the summer of 1476, the monastic community Pangarati went through a difficult procedure.

Perhaps a group of Turks set fire to the church (the monks were hiding in the mountains), passing then to Transylvania where they remained until the end of the war.

Later, the hermitage is converted in monastery (1560) by Prince Alexander Lapusneanu, which builds a stone church instead of wooden church, with a unique architecture.

In 1642, the great treasurer Dumitru Soldan will build the bell tower. Other renewals were added in the nineteenth century by Abbot Macarius, who turned the mystery basement into a church and built the imposing block of rooms in the southwest, where is the abbey, refectory and library.
