Neo-Romanian Style Stone Fence Pillars of Bellu Church

July 23, 2014

The beautiful stone fence pillars of “Bellu” Church, central-south part of Bucharest (in the area of Bellu Cemetery). The church was built between 1925-1934, a time when the Neo-Romanian architectural style was at the apogee of its development. The pillars carved in stone resemble bastions of medieval citadel, conveying the idea of strength and endurance, a message of national identity characteristic to the Neo-Romanian architectural style.

These fence pillars are representative of the Neo-Romanian style, and are among the most beautiful and expressive of this type I know in Bucharest. Pictures taken October 2011.
