Văleni Reformed-Calvinist Church

In Văleni, a village located in the administrative jurisdiction of the Călăţele commune, in the 13th century, the Franciscans erected a church in Romanesque style. Subsequently, the altar was converted into a polygonal Gothic altar supported by buttresses. The massive tower and the roof are typical of churches in the area of Călata, being erected after the earthquake in the 18th century. Originally it was a Catholic church, being later a Reformed-Calvinist church.

The ceiling is coffered, painted with motifs specific to the area. In the defensive wall of the church we encounter a funerary relief since Roman times and a carved Tatar head.
