Built in the XIVth century probably by the Genovese merchants , had the purpose to overlook the trading routes by see and land for this area, later in the XVth century it was included by King Mircea "cel Batran" in the Wallachian fortification system ... till the Ottomans arrived in 1420 till 1877 (the year of the Independence war) - so for a bit more than 450 years it was under Ottoman reign.
After the Ottomans were routed out from the region of Dobrogea the fortress lost its military purposes and started to degrade (with a helping hand from the locals who used the stone from the fortress for building purposes).
Today is a tourist attraction and a landmark of the area, closed on Mondays for visiting otherwise opened from Tuesday through Sunday.
Overall an interesting place - where you can take some great photos , so if you are in the area I recommend you pay a visit ... pity is not much guiding except for some printed panels and the museum near the location consists of printed posters and very very few items... otherwise it is a visit well worth it.

The site is on top of a hill from where you can see a lot of the land in this part of Dobrogea. Quite amazing views. Too bad there are no guides or at least some written information on the site, unless you buy a printed map of the place, you would not know anything about the time or people who built it. It’s a hidden gem though, definitely recommend if in the area.

A wonderful place forgotten by the world but full of history and from where the elements that define the entire land of Dobrogea seem to count.

Ruins are impressive from the way they are located on a hill top, with beautiful views especially at sunset.

The fortress is not a big deal. It's small and there's no info on display. All you see are some walls. There's a small museum, but it only displays some info, written on the walls in a very unattractive way. But it's location is on a hill and the views are awesome overlooking reed fields and canals. Worth the hike up. Be advised that in summer it's very very hot and not much shade available. Also no possibility to buy water. The road is good and new, but from the parking lot you have still some climbing to do and some steep stairs till the top. Not suited for mobility impaired people. Entrance is cheep 8 Ron (cash only) and parking is free. You need less than an hour to visit.

The fortress itself is not spectacular at first sight neither after you enter. The historical value is poorly preserved and unexploited. Also, the little museum doesn't offer enough details regarding the importance and usage of the fortress in the past. It's worth it to visit it for its position on top of the hill which offers a great view of the surroundings. It's a pity such a place is so underrated because of the lack of interest in maintaining the historical heritage.
