Brînzeni Grottoes


The reefs to the south-east of the village, namely in the "Mersana Zone", constitute a natural complex in which two large conchoidal reefs stand out. One is located at the confluence of the Racovăț and Draghiște rivers and is about 135 m high, and the second, 167 m high, is located on the left bank of the Racovăț. In the walls of the second one are located the Brînzeni caves, under the protection of the state. 

The cave is over 500 thousand years old. Archaeologists have determined that the Mersana Cave was inhabited in the Mesolithic, Eneolithic and Bronze Ages. The fact that it was a natural shelter of prehistoric man is proven by fragments of tools found in the cave. Mersana Cave - open-air museum.
