Parhauti Church

judetul Suceava, Bucovina

AddressCom. Todiresti, Sat Parhauti,


Situated 15 kilometers away from Suceava, All Saints Church in the village Parhauti, of Todiresti township, was built in 1522 by Gaviil Trotusanu. To get to the town Parhauti, you have to transit a bit difficult road, which splits to the left of the road from Suceava to Radauti. Rectangular shape, the massive church presents an apse in the east, the single apse.

The Church of Parhauti looks much like the Church of Reuseni. The difference is that here the concavities that have the role of side apses disappear and on the west side porch has two levels with semicircular arched openings. The church's structure is the following: a straight roof, which emphasizes the strict form, covering the structure; the windows, two on the southern and northern facades, and one on the eastern apse, are narrow and small; carved borders have sharp moldings in the form of arches; exonartex' openings, on the other hand, are flat and have a round arch. On the masonry of the pillar that separates the two entrances to the vault of the exonartex, is carved a commemorative inscription.

Although a similar structure was built in Baia, the exonartex with two tiers distinguishes the church. Through the two large arched, the path leads to the opened exonartex. The vault is transversal, as a barrel and is covered with scenes from the life of St. Nicholas.

Of a particular interest is the interior painting ensemble in 1530. Made after 1530, the interior painting is the original. Being an original painting, the scenes represented, we observe some very interesting details, such as votive painting, in which the church founder does not keep the ark in his hands, and the scene "Pieta" is in a niche of the altar, evidence of the influence of Italian painting in Moldova.
Parhauti Church is characterized by massive stone masonry, is a remarkable monument of Moldavian architecture of the XVI century.
