It was built in the mid-17TH century. Its original church was built in the center of the monastery, but over the centuries it suffered some alterations and restorations, and the last of significant value was made around 1860, under the guardianship of Nicolai Grigorescu. This monastery is very different from others we visited, such as Moldovita or Voronet, since it is so crowded with nuns that it was necessary to build small houses outside the monastery, with the characteristic of all possessing a small But well-treated garden. This monastery, probably the second with the largest number of nuns residing in Romania, is self-sufficient in financial terms. The Auto-sustenta-se monastery. All active-age nuns have their work destined for their specialty. The most techniques work in the production of beautiful tapestries that can be sold to public in general and even made to order. The concentration at work is such that when we visited the tapestry workshop, the nuns continued to work normally, as if our presence did not exist. Really, a different monastery that is well worth visiting. It remains to be added that the landscaped areas in the spaces between the church and the nuns ' chambers and workshops were impeccably treated. In these gardens, there was a fountain or watering hole with delicious water.

This is really beautiful and together with a frankly interesting architecture, it highlights the magnificent care of its nuns who have filled it with flowers everywhere. The multitude of arches surrounding the monastery evoke an expectacular cloister, which undoubtedly has its great functionality given the climatology of the place.
