Ancient fortresses and monasteries of Christian sects dating from the 10th to 14th centuries dot the valley, and were also carved into the limestone outcrops. The impressive cave monastery was carved into the rock in the 13th century by Orthodox monks, and was inhabited by the monks until the 18th century.

  • Old Orhei Tourism Main. For directions from Kignov, I wrote about the Old Orhei page in detail. The attractions are divided into two monasteries on a hill and an underground monastery with an entrance to the hillside. If you walk from the bus stop to the top of the hill, you will naturally see the monastery building on the hill, so if you go straight to the road, you are OK. The entrance of an underground monastery is on the way, so I think that it is not to be missed if it is conscious. I think that the scenery seen from the church from the top of the hill cannot be seen in other places. The view from the underground monastery was also very beautiful. There is a shop in the monastery on the hill, and it is possible to buy a simple souvenir such as a religion related thing and a magnet. There is no place to eat, you need to go to the village of Butuceni right next door.
