Sarmizegetusa Ulpia Traiana

Would you like to step back in time, for real? Go to Sarmizegetusa, the village that was built on the ruins of the Roman capital of Dacia province: Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa!

Here you can visit the ruins of some buildings of the old fortress-town:  temples, workshops, amphitheatres and the forum. Or you could take a walk thought the village, where the yards of the locals still shelter  traces of the walls which used to surround the antique town.

You will see pieces of Roman ruins, even in the walls of the houses, wells, fortress and churches. This is not only in Sarmizegetusa. It is everywhere in Haţeg Country. The buildings deserted after the Romans retreated, have become a real supply of construction stones for the local population.
