Curtea de Arges Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 109 photos

About 130 km NW of Bucharest in Wallachia, Curtea de Arges is a city with a great past, as it served as capital of feudal Walachia.
Curtea de Arges is also a place of pilgrimage for many Romanians for here stands the rather small in scale but beautiful “Episcopal” church built in the 16th century under the rule of king Neagoe Basarab, surrounded by a lot of legends on how it was built.
We arrived quite late in the afternoon in Curtea but the light from sunset was beautiful. Unfortunately the church was under construction so much of its exterior was covered. Nevertheless its interior was as rewarding as its legend tells!
