Cheia Monastery

Cheia Monastery (Romanian: Mănăstirea Cheia), a Romanian monastery for monks dedicated to the Holy Trinity, is located on the right bank of Tâmpa Creek, southeast of Cheia, Prahova County. First attested in 1770, it was destroyed by the Ottomans, then ravaged by fire. The current church was built of stone between 1835 and 1839 and painted by Gheorghe Tattarescu in 1837.
