Brancoveanu monastery in Sambata De Sus

 

 

 

The history of the Brancoveanu Monastery began in the late 17th century, around 1696, when the Romanian Prince Constantin Brancoveanu, ruler of the Romanian Province (1688 -1714), ordered the building of a monastery from bricks and stones.

 

The monastery door was carved into oak wood and the chapel was sculptured with Brancovean motifs. The interior was decorated with icons painted on glass and wood and the ceiling was adorned with neo-Byzantine fresco paintings. The Healing Fountain was first attested in documents in the 16th century, being the oldest item in the precincts of the monastery.

 

 

 

The Museum of the Brancoveanu Monastery nowadays holds one of the richest collections of paintings on glass dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, icons painted on wood, priestly and bishop s vestments, a unique collection of old books, parchments, letters and a valuable collection of worship objects.
