With an age of over five centuries, the Băneşti village experienced an uninterrupted life even though it went through difficult moments in history such as the Turkish or Tartar invasions.
The village is located on the Prahova Valley, at the confluence of the Prahova and Doftana rivers, about 30 km NW of Ploiesti and 3 km SE of Campina. The Banesti village is crossed by the national road DN1, and its location at the southern limit of the series of terraces marks the place of crossing from the plain to the mountains.
Here you can see:
- the Wooden Church "St. Princes "built in 1760 (Urleta village);
- the Aurel Vlaicu monument;
- an archaeological site where it was found a small Dacian settlement (The Banesti village);
- the stone bridge across the Doftana river, built during the reign of Al. I Cuza (The Banesti village).
