Wood Church of the orthodox Cuvioasa Paraschiva , Poienile Izei, Maramures, Northern Transylvania, Romania. Romania. UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Church of the Holy Parasceve (Poienile Izei) is one of the oldest of the wooden churches of Maramureş (1604), and reveals two phases in the development of such buildings. The first can be seen in the lower part of the walls with a sanctuary based on a square plan, a typical feature of the oldest wooden buildings. In the 18th century, the walls were raised, the naos was covered by a semi-circular vault, and the interior was decorated with paintings. The portico was added during the first half of the 19th century. .
