Petre P. Carp manor house, situated in Tibanesti, was built at the end of the 17th century. Just like the park and the family’s mausoleum, the manor house was probably projected by Gustave Eiffel, forming an architectural and historical protected heritage ensemble, in the hilly area of Moldavia, 50 km south of Iasi.
Under the guidance of a French compagnon, the young people of the village, but also whoever is interested, can learn to become a crafty smith. The created objects vary and are very useful for the restoration of heritage buildings, but also for contemporary architecture.
Every year, the foundation organizes traditional crafts workshops, affirming the Carp manor house as a continuously developing cultural center, with the help of donations and the support of the foundation’s members.
