Doamnei Church, Bucharest (1675)

Founded by Maria Doamna, the second wife of the Wallachian Prince Serban Cantacuzino (1678-1688), the church was initially the chapel of the boyar residence of Serban Cantacuzino, which was destined for a future Princely residence. The mural paintings are the original ones. On note are the carved portal and the bases and capitals of the pillars carved with oriental motifs.
