The church "The Healing Spring" Mavrogheni is listed in the list of historical monuments of national heritage. The cult of worship, founded in 1787 by ruler Nicolae Petru Mavrogheni and his wife Maria, initially had a convent regime, to become a church of Mir in the second half of the nineteenth century. The church of the monastery was worshied to the holy By God-the source of healing, like the Cişmeaua, famed for her healing powers, which was nearby. Today Mavrogheni's Cişmeaua No longer exists.
