The Assumption Church

Focsani, judetul Vrancea

AddressBlvd. Unirii, 38


The former monastery church with the patron "Assumption" - Precista is a voivodal foundation about which there is little documentary information; it is not known the act of founding nor the initial inscribed date because of the earthquakes, fires and foreign conquerors. This facility was built in the Moldavian part of the town at the beginning of XVIIIth century, namely in 1710, by Nicolae Mavrocordat.

The only information about the monastery is offered to us by a charter of 1733 issued by the ruler Grigore Ghica II, which mentions Nicolae Mavrocordat as the founder. Over time, this monastery has been granted privileges, and after a while it was subordinated to Mera Monastery.

Precista Church is a monument with a porch made of arches; a delimited narthex and nave, the lateral abysses, altar apse and above the porch rises the bell tower. The whole building is made of bricks, the tower is made of wood, the church has no more painting, the floor is made of stone slabs and the interior has woodwork furniture. Between the porch and the nave there is a wood door. Due to damages, repairs that were made didn't keep the original architectural style, some modifications and additions being done.
