Photographer's Note

The Rasca Monastery is at about 18 km far from Falticeni. The tradition says that first a little wooden church founded by Bogdan I was brought at Rasca from Bogdanesti village. In 1542, Petru Rares raised the stone wall church on its foundation. Of the former frescos, only a painting of Petru Rares, his wife Elena and two of his sons has remained.

The monastery represented a major cultural centre where Macarie, the bishop of Roman, wrote his chronicle. His tomb is sheltered inside the church, near the tomb of Anastasia, Alexandru Lapusneanu's mother.
