Bun venit pe site-ul Biserica Mavrogheni – Izvorul Tamaduirii, Parohia Mavrogheni

The "Healing Spring" Church of Mavrogheni is an oasis of tranquility and soul watering in one of the most agile areas of the capital, a place where the daily tumult of the victory market fades to give the weary traveler the opportunity to regain , in the shadow of history, in the midst of a delightful nature. As soon as you leave the Little Mint street and enter the courtyard of the Mavrogheni Church, you have many personalities of the past, more distant or more recently, linking their name to this place.

First discover that the artist Horia Bernea, director of the Romanian Peasant Museum, chose to sleep in his eternal sleep in the courtyard of the Mavrogheni Church, in order to be close to the institution to which he was fully committed. You then find out that the sculptor Constantin Brâncuand, whose portrait made by artist Silvia Radu, sneers the way to the church, was a singer of the Mavrogheni Church during his studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts. Right in front of the entrance to the church is the tomb of Ion Heliade Rădulescu whose periodic "Romanian courier" saw the light of the pattern in the typography that worked in the church yard at the end of the 18th century.

The church itself is a historic monument, being founded at the end of the eighteenth century by the ruler Nicolae Petru Mavrogheni and the wife of Mary as a multitude for the healing of their daughter touched by a serious illness. Despite the numerous damage he suffered over time and which necessitated repairs and even modification of the original architecture, the church retains much of the scent of the era in which it was built. The cloak that crosses the threshold senses the patronizing power of the Virgin Mary of healings that continuously watches over the church since its inception.
