It comprises "Saints Archangels Michael and Gabriel" Church (1636, built by Matei Basarab, painted and restored by Constantine Brancovan in 1706). In the pronaos of the church there is the tomb of a high official, Danciu, Matei Basarab's father and Matei Basarab's tomb. It is listed by UNESCO. The museum collection includes wooden icons (17th - 19th centuries), monk's garbs, silverware and religious furniture, documents, and rare books. It is worth mentioning the "Code of Laws of Govora" and "Straightening the Law", printed during the builder's reign.
