Is located on the crest of a hill, surrounded by trees and meadows, one of the most known buildings of the Romanian Middle Age. Its location is at a distance of 5-6 km from “Gura Humorului” (in the picturesque village named Manastirea Humorului)
Placed at the entrance of the exterior wall, there is an inscription carved in rock, where we found out that the Church was built in 1530 by Toader Bubuioga.
Toader Bubuioga, used to be a chancellor and member of the Moldavia Council, married to this wife, Anastasia.
The holly place rises at a distance of around 300 meters from the ruins of an older monastery church whose construction was made even from the time of Alexandru cel Bun (1400-1432).
Here, for the first time in the construction of Moldavia’s churches, we see the hallway open and a new room at the floor, named “The Mysterious”, which overlaps to the tomb room.
Humor Monastery Church, together with Voronet Monastery, Moldovita Monastery, Arbore and Sucevita Monastery are one of the five buildings, decorated by Byzantine frescoes, on the inside and on the outside.
This element is what differentiates these Monasteries from all the other Churches in the Orthodox world.
In Humor church’s case, the admiration is attracted by its exterior frescoes
