This monastery is built close to the Danube on the hill Deala Mosului. Pamfil Seicare has written about it, who was a journalist between the wars, as a soldier being transported in Orsova during the I World War. In the fall of the year 1916. The Dealul Mosului was overloaded with soil, as a consequence of a previous explosion in the area. Seicaru managed to survive the explosion and thus he promised himself that he was going to build here a chapel as a sign of remembrance for this tragedy and as a commemoration something for the ones who died during the war.

In 1935 was constructed the Heroes' Road, Drumul Eroirol, and it was 1.5km long until the Dealul Mosului, a road with some banks, especially 7 for those who contributed in the wars at Alion, Cerna and Orsova in 1916. The monastery was constructed during the years 1936 and 1939, the period when Seicaru was the chief executor at the journal Curentul, and Member of Parliament in the Romanian Parliament. This monastery got its name Saint Ann after the name of the mother of the builder. The bishop of Banat however did not want, refused to give admission to this monastery.

The reason was that the m onastery was not built on a saint place and without the bishopry`s permission. Afterwards came the II World War, times have been changing, and the politic system right after 1945, and during the communist area it was transformed to a restaurant and a disco, a party-place, and the rooms to accommodation for the guests. In 1990 this monastery finally got its sanctity, by the Mitroploiei Olteniei. Here still functions a museum of Pamfil Seicaru and another place where women can sew.
