Pana Filipescu Mansion

Pana Filipescu Mansion was erected in the 18th century by Pana Filipescu, the husband of Maria Cantacuzino, the eldest daughter of Cantacuzino Postelnic. Over time, the manor degraded and it was restored between 1968 and 1971.

The building is massive, with the outer walls of about 1m thick. The mansion has a single level with numerous rooms and a high shingle roof. Although unlined on the outside, under the eaves there is a beautiful ornamental cincture consisting of small arched hoops, which have a motif that imitates the saw blade. The most attractive element is the entrance turret. Inside, the ceilings are half-cylindrical with lateral vaults. The doors are rounded to the top, except for one, which has a stone framing with a simple decoration, over which a fragment of fresco has been preserved.

The Mansion is now a Museum.

On the way to Pana Filipescu Mansion, you can also visit the ruins of the Mavros Cantacuzino Palace, the Magureni Church, the ruins of the Draghici Cantacuzino Palace and the Calinesti Church.
