Saint Nicholas Church, SpanțovCod 1276

Saint Nicholas Church from Spanțov was built up by the village army in the year 1868 during the times of the Metropolitan Nifon, with the endeavors of the priest Radu Duhovnicul. The church with the shape of a ship was covered with plates in the year 1888, during the times of the priest Gheorghe Stănescu, and in the year 1952 the church’s painting was washed and renovated.

Between the years 1982 and 1984, there were made total reparations in the exterior and in the interior. The new painting in a wall painting technique was made during the times of the Patriarch Iustin Moisescu in the period 1985 – 1986 by the painter Ristea Nicolae, and in the year 1986 it was re-consecrated.

At the end of the XIXth century, the commune Spanțov was part of the hundred Oltenița, of the county Ilfov and it was formed by the villages Clinciu, Spanțov, Tatina and Valea lui Soare, with 1595 inhabitants. In the commune there was a school and two churches (at Spanțov and at Valea lui Soare). The Socec Annual of 1935 records the commune in the same hundred, having 2560 inhabitants in the villages Clinciu, Grădiștea Nouă, Spanțov, Stancea and Tatina (after the village Valea lui Soare was transferred to the neighboring commune Ulmeni).

The commune came back in 1968 to the county Ilfov, when it was re-founded. On this occasion, the village Clinciu was dissolved and agglomerated with the village Stancea, and the village Grădiștea – with the village Cetatea Veche.
