Vlad Tepes, Comana Monastery Fortress

VLAD TEPES, the founder of Comana Monastery Fortress, on 1461

Not far way from Bucharest, to the south, going to Giurgiu city, is one of the most important place for the  Romanian Cristianity, Comana Monastery.
The place that the monastery was raised on used to be an island, in the middle of swamps, and access was a gate to the North of the precincts, after crossing a wooden bridge, easy to burn in case of danger.
Researches established that the necropolis around the small church had been used in the second half of the 15th century and the first half of the 16th century, a period that includes the ruling years of many rulers from Vlad Dracul to Neagoe Basarab, the central figure of this list, by the dynamics of its ruling and the fight against the Turks remaining of course Vlad Tepes, the first founder of the Comana monastery, recognized as part of a system thought and made not only as a prayer place, but also for the defence of the county by this important ruler of the 15th century.
