"...NUMQVID DE DACIS AVDISTI?"
(Horatius, Satire, II, 6, 53.)
„In none of the other country sides of ancient Dacia, so many and so important monuments are to be found as in the Șureanu Mountains. Scattered in the lowlands but, mainly hanging on their peaks and long ridges, the Dacian villages and forts are amazing both the visitor and the archaeologist, either local or foreign, by their judicious emplacement, their diversity, richness and monumentality...”
Ioan Glodariu (1940-2017)
