Tower of Humor

“Tower of Humor”

Founded in 1530, Humor Monastery is located in Mănăstirea Humorului. It is rather small, physically, but it looms large among Bucovina’s treasures with a variety of frescoes dating from 1535, including one illustrating the Return of the Prodigal Son and one with a “humorous” depiction of the devil as a woman. An extremely valuable collection of icons from the 16th century is displayed in the monastery.
