"Sfântul Nicolae" (Saint Nicholas) wooden church in the village of Vălari, 18th-century construction, historical monument
The wooden church of Vălari, Hunedoara, is at the bottom of the village. The charm of the place and the artistic quality of the building reward the effort to visit it.
What surprises visitors and specialists is the construction technique, with pillars caught in soles and oak beams and with fir-tree firing on the inside. The church is very small with only 3.6 x 8.4 meters and is made up of three rooms: the women's tent, the men's church and the altar.
This small country church is a monument in the sacred wood architecture, the only one of its kind so far known in the country.
