Still being excavated. Well worth a visit if you are into history. Large site so lots of walking required.

The enclosure contains ruins from an ancient roman settlement including a forum, temples, markets and other buildings. The entire site is bigger than it seems initially and you should take at least an hour to visit. Mostly only the outlines of the structures walls remain...More

Highly recommend a visit to this site. It is much larger than it appears from the highway. Not to be missed is the forum in the back, a vast area with interesting ruins. For 5 lei (less than $ 2) buy the brochure that contains...More

The excavations are in work and the site was extended in the opposite side of the road: you may see the amphiteatrum, the forum, few temples and a palace. But most of ths city is still under the earth. We saw the excavations reveled constructions...More

Located next to the main road, with two doubtful restaurants right at the entrance, and in a strange symbiosis with some of the local households (there was a car driving on the road to the Roman Forum), the site is far from its full potential....More

A place full of history, the ruins of a great stronghold of old Dacia. There are only several ruined walls, couple of columns. The place is not fully put in value, there are only several descriptions in location. There is no toilet inside the location...More

Is a place full of history. The construction is big and impressive, worth visiting everything. The big stone walls and the layout of the historical site are imposing and give an overview in the past.

Good to go and see this site and learn more about our Roman roots! The Forum was the most interesting and the broken columns are a beauty!

No effort made to value the ruins of the former capital of the Roman Province. It looks like a collection of shattered stones surrounded by weeds, peasant households, cheap pubs. Very few and poor explanatory notes.
