The Roman castrum Arutela is a historical monument near the town Călimănești. The building lies on the left bank of the Olt River, nearby the Cozia Monastery and the Turnu hydropower complex.

It was built in 137 - 138 AD, and was mentioned until 220 - 223 AD. The fortress was built on the Traian way, the road to the north, to Sarmisegetuza, the main city of the ancient country of Dacia.

The place has been left in there with very little restoration from the lazy local administration. Such a shame and maybe this will open their eyes or hopefully just one.
Historical place which defines the whole nation and creation of it ,nearly 2000 yrs old but not a plaque saying anything about it.
You don't have to pay either but I'm sure a lot of people will just to get some info about it mr Mayor!!!!

This Construct was made by syrian soldiers from the Roman army. This was made for archers. It is located near the dam of Olt. It was abandoned because of the Olt floods.

Ancient Roman military fortification. Nice place to teach history to kids. Woods, hills, mountain, Olt river next to. All kinds of trails and path around. Suitable for tenting, trail running and mountain biking. Minutes from other historical places, good restaurants, mineral water springs etc.

We had a nice detour to visit this great rebuild of the ancient Roman fortress. It is located near the dam, with easy access from the street, approx 150m.

very interesting castrum, revealing the old civilisation in this area, it can be admired from the national road if you lack time to go down and see it better

Very little remains to be seen, although the site has been restored.

There's a place to park the car on the bridge and you must cross a main road to get there. The ruins are down in a field and it's a steep walk down and back. Don't know whether there's an alternative path.
