Frumoasa Monastery ::


Address: 1, Radu Voda Str.
Patron: Saints Michael and Gabriel (November, 8)



It was built between 1726-1733 in the traditional style.

It became a unitary ensemble, created in the Classical style, over a period of four decades. In 1753, the sovereign Matei Ghica built on Frumoasa hill a monastery in the precinct of which there was a church, a royal palace and a steeple tower included in the walls.

The church seen today was built between 1833-1836, at the request of Grigore Ghica. The steeple tower, with extremely beautiful elements, marks the entrance in the precinct of the Frumoasa Monastery.
