Coas - Maramures

The Church of the Holy Archangels in Coas seen from the west.

The church is polygonal from both ends: the west end, where the entrance door is, has three facets, while the recessed east apse has five. It is most probable that the church was enlarged at some point, for on the south façade there are the carved blocks of the frame of a former door.
The interior walls of the church are also plain white, although there are some traces of paintings on the naos vault.
