   SĂPĀNȚA-PERI monastery is a monastic settlement located on the northern territory of SĂPĀNȚA village in MARAMUREȘ county, attested in a Slavonic document on May 1, 1404.
   In 1391, the grandsons of DRAGOȘ VODA (the Voivode of the Romanian Principality of MOLDOVA), donated lands and goods to the PERI Monastery (locality located today in UKRAINE), to build a stone church, used for 300 years (in 1783 it was destroyed by order of the Hungarian prince RAKOCZI), as the headquarters of the Romanian Episcopate of MARAMUREȘ.
   In this religious place „Psaltire”, „Gospel”, „Legend of sunday”, „Voroțean codex” and „Acts of the apostles” were translated and copied into Romanian for the first time.
   The SĂPÂNȚA-PERI Monastery (of nuns) was re-established in 1997, within the boundaries of the SĂPÂNȚA village, out of the desire to rekindle the historical tradition of the old Monastery in the commune of PERI, Romanian territory occupied today by UKRAINE.
   The construction is located in ROMANIA, near the TISA river, and the church spire, with a maximum height of 78 m, is visible from a distance of five kilometers, over the TISA and can be admired by Romanians from TRANSCARPATIA, the region of historically MARAMUREȘ, ruled today of UKRAINE.
