Important medieval historical monument in the south-east of Europe, Cotmeana Monastery is the oldest in Wallachia. Initially, it was built by Radu I, ruler of Wallachia (1377- 1389), then the church was restored by Mircea the Old (1386-1418) between 1387-1389, being an excellent place of stopover on the way from Pitesti to Cozia Monastery. It became one of the important foundation of the voievode Mircea the Old. We have just visited her last weekend.
