The monastery listed as a world heritage monument, was built between 1690 and 1697, a creation of Constantine Brancovan, designed by the architects Pârvu Cantacuzino and Cernica Ştirbei. The monastery was restored between 1960 and 1978, when the rooms of the princely residence were turned into a museum. The building of the monastery is the first one in the Romanian-Brancovan style, - considered to be the Romanian renaissance style - as it was the first construction of Constantine Brancovan. Here the painting, sculpture and architecture school functioned. The monastery museum exhibits include Brancovan art items painted on wood, candelas. One can remark the architecture of the rooms.... The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure.
