Eliznik home > Romania > photo galleries > Wallachia > Horezu monastery

Horezu is best known for its pottery, which is sold at most Romanian folkcraft shops, but also just outside the town is the Horezu Monastery complex built at the end of the 17th century and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This was the site of the school that created the Brâncoveanu architectural style.
