Hlincea Monastery ::

The today's church, situated at about 3 km South-West of Cetatuia Monastery, was built by Vasile Lupu and finished by his son, Stefanita Voda, on 20-th of November 1660. The church, built in the Moldavian architectural style, is made of rocks and bricks. The painting belonging to Ioan Matei was accomplished in 1660. Between 1788-1792 and 1806-1812 (when Iasi was invaded by the Russian troops), the monastery served as military hospital.
