The church is was built around 1714-1715 by Antim Ivreanul.
It has a three-conic plan with a porch opened on columns. The stone foundation is a unique piece of Romanian art.

The round decoration above the entrance door is a symbol of faith. The original key of the church door had the same round design on it. The key is on display at the National Museum. The church door was sculpted by hand by Antim himself.

This is one of my favorite churches in Bucharest. I used to stop by this church every time I was in this area of the town.
