A very special cemetery where the funerary crosses are painted in bright colors and the eu-logies written on them are sometimes funny poems.
The concept of the cemetery is rooted in an ancient belief of the locals. They see death as a celebration of a life that ended rather than of a tragic event.
The new Sapanta Peri Monastery was founded in 1997 in Sapanta village in order to revive the historical tradition of the ancient monastery of St. Archangel Michael in Peri, Maramures, found today on Ukrainian territory.
