The Brebu Manor House is a medieval building, mentioned for the first time in 1640, in the time of the ruler Matei Basarab. It was the residence of the ruling families, both in times of peace and war. It had a defensive-military character, but also for prayer, as the Brebu Monastery is located in the courtyard. This is a foundation of Matei Basarab, whose construction was completed in 1690, during the reign of Constantin Brâncoveanu.

It is one of the oldest medieval houses in the Wallachian area, preserved in its authentic form. It is considered a secular architectural jewel from the first half of the 17th century, with a spacious loggia compared to other manor houses in Romania. Its role was that of recreation, and it was often used for royal feasts. Today, it is the venue for events recorded in the museum’s cultural agenda.
The interior of the house is a journey into the Romanian Middle Ages, with all the pieces evoking a glorious past. Among the most representative pieces exhibited in the “Brebu Manor House” Museum are the collection of old books (Bible from Bucharest, Cazania from Iasi) and other valuable documents of the time, along with icons, medieval vestments and personal belongings.
