Cetatuia Monastery / Mănăstirea Cetăţuia din Iasi, Romania
Located on the top of Cetăţuia Hill of the old Moldavian capital. This monastery was built by Prince Gheorghe Duca in the 17th century.[2] The monastery is surrounded by fortifications with towers on the corners. It The name Cetăţuia means citadel or fortress in Romanian. The entire ensemble of monastic architecture has been preserved. A special place is the palace destined to the lodging of the prince, a fortified building characteristic to the 17th century and the kitchen or, according to other opinions, the Turkish bath which is the only construction of this kind that has been preserved within a monastic ensemble. In addition there is also a gothic hall, a museum of medieval art, a tower called “Pilgrim’s Dinner” from where one can admire the panorama of Iași and its famous wine cellars with wine obtained from its own vineyard. The wine cellar is accessed by steep steps in the palace which is the Italianate looking building. About eight to ten meters below ground, it is cool and has stainless steel vats of wine as well as several old huge wooden casks. The monks also sell preserves like linden blossoms or green walnuts. The monastery is surrounded by many acres / hectares of vinyards and orchards.
