Rasnov Castle



 

To ensure protection against both Turkish and Tartar invasions and the trespasses of the feudal noblemen, the inhabitants of Rasnov erected a refuge and a fortress on the top of the hill in the 13th century. Attested by documents since as early as 1335, the fortress was reinforced with ramparts, towers and bulwarks that made it one of the most solid Transylvanian fortresses in the 15th century.

Although under multiple sieges along the centuries, the fortress protected the lives and the properties of the inhabitants of Rasnov and of the neighbouring villages.
