Costești-Cetățuie Dacian fortress

Costeşti-Cetăţuie was a Dacian fortified town. According to the UNESCO site: “Costeşti-Cetăţuie, a small plateau on a hill overlooking the left bank of the river Apa Oraşului, was terraced to form a strong fortress. Its fortifications were laid out in three concentric bands, erected in successive stages of the fortress’s life. The ramparts are constructed from stone, wood and rammed earth, a different technique being used for each enceinte. A number of towers survive.”
