The Moldovita Monastery (Romanian: MA?nastirea Moldovita) is a Romanian Orthodox monastery situated in the commune of Vatra Moldovitei, Suceava County, Moldavia, Romania. The Monastery of Moldovita was built in 1532 by Petru Rares, who was Stefan the Great's (in Romanian Stefan cel Mare) illegitimate son. It was founded as a protective barrier against the Muslim Ottoman conquerors from the East.The best preserved are the monasteries in the towns of Sucevita, Moldovita, Voronet, Humor, Suceava, Patrauti, Arbore and Probota. These eight monasteries - including the Monastery of Moldovita - were placed on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1993, as the Painted churches of Moldavia
