In Alun village there is also a unique church in the country and the second in Europe. Built entirely out of marble extracted from the village quarry, the church was built between 1937 and 1939 and cost about 500,000 ROL. It dominates the village and is the only one in Romania whose walls were made of this precious building material. It was painted between 1963 and 1966, and is now too much for the few elders who still live in Alun.
In the commune of Bunila we can find the church "Descent of the Holy Spirit" replaced in 1903, during the pastoral life of priest Iosif Suciu, an old stone quarry, severely damaged by a stumbling block in 1897. That public foundation is included in the tables of the inscriptions from 1733, 1750, 1761-1762, 1805 and 1819-1831 (the Josephine map of Transylvania from 1769-1773 omitted). It is a rectangular plan of edifice with three-sided polygonal apse, with a robust bell-tower, covered in galvanized sheet; The same material was used on the roof itself. The edifice, renovated in 2006, is outfitted with a knot. The access to the holy place is made by two doors, located on the south and west sides; The latter is preceded by a closed porch, plank. The interior remained unpainted, being decorated with several icons on lenm and glass.
