Even though he has not been canonized, the faithful call him ‘The Saint of Ardeal’ – or Transylvania – and travel hundreds of kilometres to get to his grave in the graveyard of Prislop Monastery, Hunedoara County. Priest Arsenie Boca is the one who draws hundreds of faithful looking to find some comfort for their soul at Prislop Monastery, in the Retezat Mountains.
The place the monastery is located in is one with a special meaning, carrying the efforts of those who dedicated their life to the church and the imprint left by the late priest monk Arsenie Boca.

Raised in a forest clearing in the Retezat Mountains, several dozen kilometres from the town of Hateg, the monastery today is a place of pilgrimage for the Christian Orthodox believers from all over Romania.
