Description

L'eglise des Trois Hierarques de Iassy (1639) est un monument unique dans l'architecture roumaine et en general dans celle post-byzantine, alliant la tradition byzantine aux elements caracteristiques de l'art de la Moldavie et de la Valachie.

Elle se distingue par le riche decor sculpte en pierre qui couvre en entier les facades.
