Next to Oravita, it can be find one of the oldest monasteries in Banat, the Monastery of Calugara. Its construction is being happened with certain miracles according to folks` talk. In 1830, the priest Iancu Carsovanul being fed up with the goats in the forests heard certain religious songs at the end of the road, in this valley, next to the big stones and slope.

The investigation of the area started in 1859, when a new cave was found in the arrow with a stone altar within, which was there along with certain icons, one with Maria and the Jesus, and some other minor things which still remained from long times ago there. Alexie Nedici a very young priest started on the back of horses to make a tour and ask for money from the inhabitants for the construction of a monastery, which happened between 1860-1861. It has the form of a ship 17+7m, and zinc is the roof of it having three bells in its tower.

We can still find all what had been found in the cave before kept now here in the monastery. It has been renovated in 1942 but earlier certain minor changes have been made already in the 19th century too. The interior was painted by Nicolae Popovici.
