Historic sites

“Located on the top of Cetăţuia Hill of the old Moldavian capital, the monastery was built by Prince Gheorghe Duca in the 17th century.[2] The monastery is surrounded by fortifications with towers on the corners, and it provided refuge during enemy siege or full-scale invasions. The name itself Cetăţuia means citadel or fortress in Romanian. The uniqueness of Cetățuia Monastery consists in the fact that the entire ensemble of monastic architecture has been preserved. 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.”
