About The Franciscan Church

The Franciscan Church is a place of worship in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. It was built between 1260 and 1290, on the site of an older Catholic church destroyed during the tatar invasions in 1241.

In 1390, the Benedictine monks have received the church. They extended it and built a small Gothic cloister near the church, with the help of John Hunyadi.

In 1556, the Queen of Hungary, Isabella Jagiełło has moved to the cloister and lived there with her son John II Sigismund Zápolya until 1557. Today, the cloister is a music school.

In the church exterior we find the statues of the Virgin Maria, Sf. Francisc and Sf Anton.
