“Beautiful place, quiet and mystical”

Ranked #18 of 54 things to do in Alba County
Attraction details
Reviewed February 22, 2013

You can only image what this place was like in the 13th century!

if you can find it , well done, you can see it through a gap on the road for about 1/2 a second then it is obscured by the houses again. It took four attempts to find it and eventually we saw the sign.

There was not a person around, it was a half an hour walk up to the ruins and the views are magnificant. Romania is such a beautiful place and I am always reluctant to share it within anyone....

The ruins are still in quite good order , a lot of the walls are strewn about the hill as stones but it has been ravaged by time and conflict for hundreds of years, you woudl expect this.

It is only an hour outside Cluj by car, if you want peace, good air and some exercise then go for it, there are plenty of pensions in the area to stay. Not much else in terms of shops and restaurants but with some provisions you can make a good day of it
