Photographer's Note

The "Corbii de Piatra" Monastery is located in the Corbi commune, on the road Campulung-Domnesti, and it is an assembly that is partially situated in a cave. It was built in the 14th century. According to the documents, it was re-established during the reign of Neagoe Basarab (1512-1521).
The church of the monastery was carved in a rock. Near the church, there is a space that looks like an open air court. It is said that this space had been used by Neagoe Basarab.
The church is extremely valuable not only due to its location and to the way it was carved in the rock, but also due to the Byzantine paintings that adorn it, dating back to the 14th century.
