This eastern orthadox monastery is dedicated to the Archangels Michael and Gabriel. It was first built in 1724 by Ioanichie Stratonikeas, whose tomb is in the church, and is one of the few churches that survived the Big Fire of 1847 which destroyed a lot of the old city. Even if you don't go in, it’s worth seeing the exterior of this church. It has twisting columns, intricate stone carvings and colourful painted walls. Even the fencing is ornately intricate, made of twisted iron.  Now all that remains of the original monastery is the church, but adjacent to it there’s a museum that holds a library and displays a collection of early 18th century icons and ecclesiastical objects. Most eye-catching has to be the sections of wall paintings that were recovered from churches demolished during Romania’s communist years.
