Turnu Monastery - 15 -16th century

Turnu Monastery is one of the most sacred Christian monastic dwellings of the Ramnic Diocese. Secluded on the left bank of the Olt River, sheltered by Cozia Mountain and located nearly 2 km away from Cozia Monastery, also built by an ancient Romanian ruler, Mircea The Old, Turnu Monastery was, for centuries, a very remote and unreachable place. Coming from the South, the only way of access was by taking the cart from Jiblea, and, after reaching Cozia, by sailing across the Olt, then walking along the river. From the North, the only connection was made by the paths going up the mountain and then descending in Lovistei Valley villages. Nowadays, the possibilities to reach Turnu Monastery are multiple and easier.
