– Guided tour in the village to the Church with the Temple of "Saint Basil the Great", historical monument class A: the painting of the church, completed in 1814, was executed by the Grecu brothers from Săsăuş, in Byzantine style. Here we meet the "yellow of Fofeldea", considered by specialists to be similar to the "blue of Voroneț", for the uniqueness of the shade used by the painters. The community of Fofeldea will symbolically take over the baton from the community of Ighișu Vechi for the organization of the second edition of the Night of Museums in Villages in Hârtibaciului Plateau in 2024, on the stage of the festivities in Ighiș!
