Desesti is another village with a spectacularly painted church, worthwhile your visit
The church in Desesti was built in 1770, and the frescoes were painted 10 years later, by a local master-painter. Apparently, much of the church was badly damaged in 1925 after lightning, but the frescos inside have survived – and the outside is perfectly restored, again. Here, too, the inside is painted top to bottom, quite special.
Desesti is perhaps easiest to visit, along the main road to Baie Mare, the region’s capital city.
