Bârsana is one of the most important villages in the valley of the Iza River.

Barsana is one of the wooden churches in Maramures, a beautiful synthesis of Eastern and Western European architecture, with Gothic and Byzantine elements. The church was manually carved by some of the most talented craftsmen from Maramures.

The complex comprise at least 10 beautiful buildings, constructed in traditional stile with extremely gorgeous balconies, windows and staircases carved in wood .
