Or just hundred meters from the Estate, meander around the extravagant statues of the Fields of Sculptures, called “Tabara de sculptura de la Magura”.
Over 16 summers from 1970 to 1986, numerous Romanian artists came here carving the local white limestone. They left their engraved testimonies and a tribute to the local sculpture tradition. The nearby village of Ciuta still has few limestone workers digging the quarries and hammering the stones!
