After the 1838 earthquake the building was renovated by the architect Faiser and the entrepreneur C. Schwink. In 1871 the famous Romanian artist Gheorghe Tattarescu painted the interior.

Closed by the regime until 1989 the church of Coltea remains one of the most attractive  monuments of Bucharest. Placed near another monument, Coltea Hospital, the oldest hospital in the city, the architecture monument is a sample of long lasting resistance.
