The “Pana Filipescu Mansion” Museum is a historical and architectural monument, built in the traditional style in the middle of the 17th century. The founder of the manor is the great chancellor Pană Filipescu. He was related to the Cantacuzino family through his marriage to the eldest daughter of Constantin Cantacuzino. The manor is located in the commune of Filipeștii de Târg, on the right bank of the river Prahova, in the county of the same name.

The mansion rests on 8 columns with bases and capitals on the south side. This style fits in perfectly with the architecture of the time, with elements belonging to the Brancovenesc style – the first Romanian architectural style. The building has 10 rooms, of which only four are open to the public. The first room houses the models of the greatest church of Prahova county. The next room houses Șerban Cantacuzino’s unfinished Bible from 1688, and a series of old Catholic and Orthodox icons are on display. The third room is a reconstruction of a monastery printing press, and the last offers visitors a glimpse into the Philippi era, displaying previously unpublished documents and personal family heirlooms. The “Pană Filipescu Manor” Museum also has a basement, which houses a Lapidarium room, where numerous funerary crosses, grindstones and stone decorations from the Filipești area are exhibited, as well as an agricultural-themed exhibition.
