About Lövéte

Lueta (Lövéte) is the largest subalpine set-settlement near the Homorod.

It can be approached from Szentegyháza (Vlăhiţa), along the "still bitumenized" no. 132 county road.

Due to its high houses, narrow, curving streets, colourful folk customs, its architectural and ethnographical traditions, it is one of the most interesting villages of Szeklerland. Formerly it was a falconer-village as well, this is referred to by the place name ('Falcon Stone') on one of its borders.

Lueta is situated in the relatively narrow and slided valley of the Homorodul Mic, to the south of Vlahita, 10 km far from it. The most significant landslide after 1913 took place in June 1970 when 14 million cubic metre earth moved on the right slope of the Homorodul Mic.

Roman Catholic Church: According to the note on the facade of the tower, the church consecrated to the Holy Virgin was built in 1776. The west-facing church consists of a nave, a chancel and a sacristy. It was built in late Baroque style and owns three mediaeval carved stones: the Gothic baptistry (in the nave), a pillar-shaped holy-water basin bearing elements combining Romanesque and Gothic styles (built in the wall of the nave). These were probably brought here from the mediaeval church of the village. A Gothic chalice was brought to Alba Iulia, today it belongs to the Battyhaneum collection.
