The Mulbery Madonna Church from Craiova, Dolj county, was built between 1750 – 1756 and rebuilt in 1844 after an earthquake. According to the legend, a Jewish merchant found a Virgin Mary icon in a mulberry tree in Craiova. He took the icon in order to sell it, but he kept on ”losing” the icon ”finding” it in the same mulberry tree he first saw it. Hearing about this, Chiriac Gaianu, a great boyar and the owner of the orchard where the mulberry was, decided to build a church on the mulberry`s place, as an homage to the Virgin Mary icon.

The Mulberry Madonna Church is dedicated to “The Assumption of the Holy Virgin Mary” and is a historic monument.
