Roman ruins and Romanian Leisure

Located on DN 13 and E 60, 20 km North from Braşov and 100 km from Sighisoara, Feldioara dominates the lower Barsa Land from the hill continuing Persani Mountains and coming to a stand on the river Olt bank. Feldioara is 40 km distant from Bucegi Mountains, 30 km from Postavarul Massif, 45 km from Piatra Craiului Massif and 10 km from Persani Mountains.

A unique Road Structure

According to mayor Ioan Cioaca, the locality has a unique road structure in Barsa Land. ?The main axe, extremely large, 1,5 km length, is perpendicular to the sun line. In the centre there are the main buildings: the evangelic church in the medieval area, the town hall ? a building dating back to the 18th century, and the school. The other streets are parallel or perpendicular on the main axe?.

Castrum Sancte Maria

The settlement?s history begins in the Neolithic. The archaeological excavations revealed a reach inventory, mostly painted pottery of Ariujd type. The researches proved the life?s continuity till the beginning of the Middle Ages, attested by Greek and Macedonian coins, golden spoons carrying the imperial roman mark, dating back to the 4th century B.C. In 1240, it appears under the name of Castrum Sancte Maria. The Teutonic Knights built a citadel between 1211-1225, helped by the inhabitants.

Ruins of an ancient Glory

The historical patrimony is reach in buildings: the medieval citadel, the evangelic church (the 13th century), the orthodox one (1788) and the monument dedicated to the memory of the 39 young people killed in the battle between the prince Gabriel Bathory and the inhabitants of Brasov, in 1612. The ruins of the citadel rise on the southern side of the plateau where Feldioara is located. The territory is delimitated by a defence dike, dug in the medieval period. The stronghold still conserves 2 towers in ruins, connected by defence walls. Although in its glorious time, the citadel used to have strong 2 m width strong walls on rocks and bricks, it conserves today the north-western tower, almost intact, the fountain in the middle, now sealed, the rocky foundation of the chapel and part of the cave.

The Evangelic Church

The church is located at the eastern side of the locality. According to the historical traditions, it hosted the main seat of the Teutonic Knights of Barsa Land. The church was built on gothic style on the basement of an ancient basilica dating back to the 13the century.
Beside those historical monuments, the area is extremely attractive thanks to the lakes offering leisure possibilities, rows, sporting fishing and agrotourism.
