From Caciulata just 30 minutes walk along Olt river and you can discover one beautiful place where the monks build a small heaven. It is a good example for all people which cannot see the benefits of "working and living together as a community".

I was happy to see that the cook, Father Dionisios, was still there, but I realized our relationship changed. He was distant..after all these years..I thought I would find a lost friend, but I was dissapointed.

The old church of the monastery is beautiful and the little rooms in the stone are interesting. The new church building has a church at the ground floor and another at the 1st floor.
