Bārsana..... I was amazed with the kind of magic Romanians could do with wood. The region of Maramures was famous for the wooden churches, mostly built in the eighteen century when Gothic architecture was at its height. Bārsana Monastery, a new complex built in the traditional style, looked like it was placed in a Hansel and Gretel setting. It was all done in wood. But, even local houses had intricate trim along the eaves and magnificent gate entrances.
