The wooden church "Assumption of the Virgin Mary" from Cărpiniş
Biserica de lemn / Obiective turistice
Cărpiniș 437102, Romania
Erected in 1757 as a modest building, the wooden church "Assumption of the Virgin Mary" was moved about 100 years later to its current location. Here, as the population of the village grew, it was necessary to expand the church by adding a porch, steel-lattice and a turret. Also, the nave was enlarged and the altar was rebuilt. The changes made turned the church layout into an atypical one, as it no longer had a detached apsis.
