Biserica Bărboi a fost construită între anii 1841-1843, pe fundaţia unei biserici datând din 1615 (Sfânta Vineri) construită de vornicul Ioan Ursu Barboi. Interiorul bizantin al bisericii a fost construit din piatră şi cărămidă. Porticul, susţinut de coloane dorice este realizat în stil clasic, în timp ce turla prezintă elemente romanice neogotice. Datorită formei şi dimensiunilor ei, Biserica Bărboi este replica moldovenească a unor edificii similare de pe Muntele Athos. Intrarea principală este marcată de un portal impozant susţinut pe 6 coloane din piatră cu capiteluri dorice. Biserica are o turlă centrală cu deschidere mare ce se dezvoltă pe o bază pătrată. Turla centrală este încadrată de 4 turle cu deschidere mult mai mică şi care au baze octagonale. Parametrul exterior al bisericii este compus dintr-o alternanţă de blocuri de piatră de talie şi şiruri de carămidă. Interiorul bisericii spaţios este compus din 3 nave una centrală şi 2 laterale desparţite prin coloane de marmură de Carara care au la partea superioară capiteluri în stil Corintic. În această biserică îşi au mormântul, pe lânga Ioan Sandu Sturdza, primul domn pamântean din 1822, şi alţi membri importanţi ai familiei Sturza. Tot în biserică într-o nişă în peretele sudic au fost depuse osemintele poetului Alecu Russo, cel ce a scris poemul "Cântarea României". Tot aici a fost diacon şi a locuit în casa parohială Ion Creangă între anii 1863 şi 1865. În turn a fost găsită biblioteca scriitorului Costache Conachi.
