Arbore Church (1502)
Arbore Church
Arbore Monastery was built in 1502 by Suceava's chief magistrate, Luca Arbore (he owned the entire village), who raised the small church next to his private residence as a family chapel and cemetery. His Gothic-style tomb lies inside the first chamber of the church, beneath a beautiful carved-stone canopy.
