The Church of Sânpetru

It is one of the most famous mediaeval stone churches of the Hațeg County.  The church was built in the 14th century and it is a simple construction with few decoration details. Pieces from the nearby Roman ruins were inserted in the walls of the church. The most outstanding of these Roman stones is the marble altar, placed at the entrance of the church, which seems to have been brought from a Roman temple, the inscription on the altar being dedicated to Silvanus, the Roman god  of the forests and was erected by an officer of Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa, thankful for having been promoted. The outside of the church can be visited any time.
