Barboi Church was built between 1841-1844, on the foundation of an old church dating from 1615. The Byzantine interior was built from rocks and bricks. The portico, held by Doric columns, is created in Classical style, while the spire presents neo-Gothic Roman elements. Because of its form and dimensions, Barboi Church is the Moldavian replica of some similar buildings on Mount Athos.

Writer Alecu Russo and sovereign Ioan Sandu Sturdza were buried in the church?s court and in the tower was found the library of writer Costache Conachi. At this church Ion Creanga was curate during 1863-1865.
