Humor Monastery (1530)
Humor Monastery
Humor Monastery has no tower and is surrounded by ramparts made from wood; its traditional Moldavian open porch was the first of its kind to built in Bucovina. Its exterior frescoes, dating from 1535, are predominantly red. Paintings on the church's southern exterior wall are devoted to the Holy Virgin, the patron saint of the monastery.
