The Mausoleum of the Filișanu Family, FiliașiCod 1393

The mausoleum – chapel was built between 1865 – 1868 by the architect Theofil von Hansen, also responsible for the extraordinary chapel from the Știrbey property from Buftea. At a closer look, the two esthetic constructions are very much alike. The one from Dolj was built in the neo – gothic style with Italian influences.

The building was built up by Dimitrie Filisanu, an aristocrat who marked the evolution of the city, becoming a real historical personality.

The architect got his inspiration at building the mausoleum from a French model.

The historical ensemble is composed by a mausoleum, surrounded by a wall from the premise. Although normally you cannot enter inside the building, it can easily be passed through the broken wall which surrounds the mausoleum

Dimitre Filișanu, a man with a bright mind and a soul full of a clean an true devoutness to God, hardened even as a child in the fight for defending the ancient fireplace and of the faith, he vigorously put his print on the history of the locality Filiași. Over the course of time, after 260 years (in 1896) another Filișanu, also Dimitrie, founds at Filiași a wonderful construction, the Filișanu Chapel. Worked with French masters, this chapel is the soul legacy of Smaranda and of Dimitrie Filișanu, left to the inhabitants of this establishment, who are proud of the fact that in this locality there were born and there lived such people.

He had the degrees of cavalry commander (1839), cupbearer (1841) and great aga (1850).

In the year 1839 he was the president of the Magistrate from Craiova. After the starting of the revolution from 1848 he was named the leading of the county of Dolj.
