Withdrawn behind the catholic church in Bălcescu Square, the Salvatorian Monastery displays its Neo-Gothic facade to passersby, unphased by the noise of the square and of the tram line passing in front of it.

The building showcases fine stone lacing, statues and an artful rhythming of the facade resulting from the relationship between the slender pediments and the rows of windows which, at the ground floor level, end in ogival arches. This rhythm has been admirably preserved when the building was extended.
