The Clocociov Monastery is situated in Slatina, Olt county, and was built in 1645. It is dedicated to ”Saints Archangels Michael and Gabriel” and is a historic monument. According to the legend, the ruler of Valachia, Matei Basarab, being chased by the Turks, hid in the hollow of an elder tree from the Clocociov forest. He escaped the Turks and being grateful to God, he decided to build a monastery, to which he donated many estates.
