The current Noblesse Palace was built in 1881, shortly after the architect returned from Paris. It is one of the main eclectic style houses built in the Calea Moșilor area of Bucharest. The building is representative of the late nineteenth century, being one of the buildings that contributed to the name of Bucharest as “Little Paris”.
