Located in the Șiria commune, the Feredeu Monastic Complex includes two distinct areas, a monastery situated in the valley and a hermitage, located on the western slope of Zărand Mountains. Feredeu hermitage, dating from 18th century, is located below the Izvorul Rece top, at an altitude of 427 meters.
The sanctuary is located near a fountain which, according to the believers has healing powers. Hence the name of the monastery (regionalism „feredeu”, derived from hungarian „furdo” which means bathroom, bathing place, but also spa village). The hermitage can be reached either by taking the upgraded road of the steep slope of the Zărand Mountains, or by following the touristic trail, marked with a yellow tape.
