Keywords:religious heritage, Iaşi city, territorial expansion, urban tourism
For Romania, one of the most important elements that sustain tourism is the cultural and the historical heritage. Among this, the monasteries and the churches are the most representative because the Romanian people are characterized by a profound sense of religiosity. That led to the construction of many places of worship that impress nowadays with their age, architectural style, murals and iconography and also with their stories and their importance in the daily life of the community. Studying and analysing their history and their geographical position can bring us precious information about the territorial evolution of the city and about the role they played among years.
