The church built by Neagoe Basarab (King of Muntenia 1512-1521) is the most valuable religious art and architecture building in Arges area. Now is recently renovated.
Also called the Episcopal Church, it houses the tomb of the first King of Romania Carol I.
It’s architecture is unique, a must see. The 12 interior columns, supporting a dome in the middle and two side towers, have unique different designs. The two side towers characterized by twisting sections of masonry that look like falling on each other
The builder was Master Manole, and the legend says that whatever he was building during the day was demolished during the night. Only after he built his wife (Anna) alive, the construction remained standing. The supposed tomb of Anna, wife Master Manole is marked on south wall of the Church.
