WPC: Enduring Painted Monasteries

Manasteria-Moldovita

The Bucovina region is famous for its painted monasteries.  Here, at Mânăstirea Moldovița, it is believed that the paint on the exterior of the monastery has miraculously endured more than five hundred years of harsh weather conditions, remaining bright and colorful even today.  Considering that I can barely survive a typical workday or a trans-Atlantic flight, we’ve got to give these monasteries some credit (miracle or not!).
