The Feleacu church, built between 1486-1488 in the Gothic style, rises on the top of Feleac Hill, is the church of the former Feleacu monastery. Between 1481 and 1538, Feleacu was the episcopal seat for the Romanians in Northern Transylvania. In 1481 a Slavonic Liturgy was copied in the monastery. In the 18th century, an iconography workshop also functioned here.

The church is a hall-type building, ribbed with ribs, painted on the inside and decorated with many icons by the painter Nistor, between 1760 and 1765. The church was restored in 1925 under the patronage of King Ferdinand of Romania, following the plans of the architect Kós Károly. The bust of Șefan the Great, installed west of the church, was made at the end of the 19th century. Archaeological excavations carried out in the church in 2011 revealed 18 graves, proving that the church was raised on a cemetery.

The oldest tomb dates back to 1300. Most of the coins found are from the 15th century, but there are also some of the 13th century. Archaeologists have also found pieces of ceramics from the 14th-15th centuries. The church will be transformed into a museum.
