Towards the end of the fifteenth century on the current Rarau Monastery settlement, there was a small hermitage, Pious Sisoe. According to the legend, in 1538, when the wife and children of Petru Rares hid in Rarau, being protected by monks, in return, the prince built a new church instead of the old church, and so Rarau hermitage was founded in the former Dodu hermitage.

Rarau Monastery can be reached by Vatra Dornei: the city bus station you can take the bus Dorna Arini - Chiril, after which the road must be crossed on foot. Another route would be the one that starts from Targu Neamt or Piatra Neamt, passing through Poiana Teiului, Brosteni and getting into the Chiril village. From the bridge over the river Chiril, you climb Rarau mountain on a paved road about 4 kilometers, then, next to a crucifix, you walk on an unpaved road (in summer, during sunny days, the monastery can be reached by car), other 800 meters. Another route, much more difficult, is from Campulung East, over the top od Rarau. This route is closed during winter, because is hardly accessible even during sunny days.

Monk monastery since 1800, at Rarau rest for the Eternity, along the father Veniamin, 20 other monks. The cells and the guests house in the courtyard of the monastery can host 150 pilgrims. Besides accommodation, those who choose to stop to Rarau also have the possibility, either day or night, to confess, listening the advice of the parents priests from Rarau Monastery.
