This Roman Catholic church takes its name from a word "barát", that means "brother" (monk). Franciscan monks built a wooden church here back in 14th century. Several times since then it was demolished and reconstructed again.

Baratia(The Brotherhood) church is the oldest romano-catholic church in Bucharest,situated in the middle of the town. Not very big,with a shaded interior and a simple facade,almost hidden in the back of other building.A few meters away to the church is a very beautiful belltower.
