This palace was designed by the architect I.D.Berindei in
French baroque style and construction was started in 1899. Above the main entrance there is a giant shell-shaped
porte-cochere; two stone lions guard the entrance. George Enescu - Romania's national composer - lived here for
a period of time. The building belonged to his wife Maria Cantacuzino. In fact Enescu preferred a life of simplicity
and he and his wife chose to live in a smaller town house that previously housed the administrative staff of the palace;
this house is located behind the main palace. Nowadays the palace houses the George Enescu Museum which displays
the musicians manuscripts (scores of his compositions) and personal belongings like one of his first violins.
