Today's "Saint Spiridon" Church was built between 1805-1807 on the place of an older and smaller church which was seriously damaged by an earthquake on October 26, 1802. According to the motive in the church porch, written in Romanian with Cyrillic letters and dating from 1847, three other churches were built at this time. These ones suffered either because of some natural phenomena or because of foreign occupation. The steeple tower of the church dates to 1786. Its architecture was influenced by the decorative elements of Russian Baroque. In the interior part of the steeple tower there are two water pumps with the sovereign?s mark on their frontispiece.
