Our visiting timing was really bad. The monastery was full due to the Sunday mass and cannot really see much. It.s a free and accesibile location and the monastery park has two old churches that I am sure are worth visiting when it is not a mass.

The visit to the Monastery is a "must" for the Curtea d Arges area. It is worth a deviation if you are in the surrounding area.
