Collection(s)The monastery, raised by the middle of the 17th century, was built by Prince Matei Basarab of Wallachia. It was designed like the defence fortresses, with strong walls, surrounding the inner constructions. Therefore, Tudor Vladimirescu gave it a special strategic importance in the revolutionary movement from 1821. The church was restored in 1690 by Constantine Brancovan. There are still mural paintings from the 18th - 19th century. It is listed as a historic monument. The exhibits include religious art items, Romanian rare books, and icons.
