The orthodox Jitianu Monastery is situated in Braniste village, Dolj county. It is dedicated to Saint Dimitri the Great and Saint Ilie. The Monastery was built on an ancient small wooden church, at the end of the 15th century and at the beginning of the 16th century. The Craiovesti Boyars had a great contribution to its building, mostly because the Monastery strengthened the defense points around the city of Craiova to prevent and stop the Turkish attacks which were very frequent at those times. The actual church of the Monastery was built between 1654 – 1658 by the Lady Balasa, the wife of the Valachian ruler Constantin Basarab.
