Baia CÃƒlugÃƒrilor literally means ‘The Monk’s Bath’ in Romanian language. The cathedral and the monastery in its vicinity used to be a very popular destination for pilgrims and hundreds of thousands of Catholics from Sumuleu would visit it frequently. There are several springs of mineral water on the territory behind the cathedral and the monastery, and these form the monk’s bath. A garden was built around, mainly for the pilgrims who would travel from near and far. This place featured several characteristics: A dark mirrored bathroom, foot baths, shallow buildings, trails, fences, gates, ornamented with sacred signs and paintings representing the Holy Virgin and Saint Francis. Though little of it is left now, this place still has a wonderful aura, and the surroundings are picturesque.

Baia Calugarilor Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful place to relax, just not well-kempt.
A very interesting place !
Great place but ruined by people(trash, graffiti etc)
Beautiful religious place !
It is a part archaic, part traditional, part naive small park at the foot of the Somlyo (Sumuleu) mountain, the important pilgrimage site for all Hungarians at the Pentecost. It is a wetland with wooden planks as pathways and a small bath with reddish mineral water. It also has a mineral water spring that has a strong characteristic taste (due to the high iron content and other minerals). Locals like it a lot and take it home in large quantities for everyday drinking. Other structures of the park are in various stages of decay due to the use of organic materials (mainly wood). It is a very scenic place.
