IMG_9551_resizeIn Gârcina Commune, Neamt County, on main DN15C highway (Piatra Neamt – Targu Neamt) is made at a given moment a road to the left (DN146). Going this way we will find out, in a clearing from the foot of the forest, Almas Monastery. It has an ancient history that begins from 1659 when a family of shepherds from Hateg named Almas, loving of God Orthodox Christian, runaway from Transylvania out of the way of Hungarian oppression, founded with the help of yeoman from these places, a hermitage dedicated to Saint Nicholas. Place of worship was burned, not before long, by Tatars. Remade in 1715, the hermitage was robbed by eterists in 1821 and forsaken by the monks. In the same year is built of stone, the actual church, dedicated to All Saints Sunday and the hermitage is inhabited by nuns. Since 1967, the hermitage returns to monks, and from 1990, th church obtained the status of the monastery. At sanctification, which took place in 1995, the church received and dedication day to the Mother of God. In the church exists the Miraculous Icon of St. Anna, miracles which are writen in the monastery history.

Traveler, this place of tranquility, peace and worship found in a blessed corner of nature, about who wrote memorable things Calistrat Hogaş, will fill your soul with peace and reconciliation.
