ROSIA MONTANA, only a step to desaster !
The old Roman site, mentioned ever since 06.02.131 on wax slates, was founded in 1854 in the galleries of the Roman gold mines in the area.
The slates had probably been hidden between 131-167AfHr from the attacks of Marcoman barbarians. The documents show that the Romans had got and sent to Rome about 1,650,000 kg gold from these mines.
There is a legend about a hen laying gold eggs in her nest on the "Gaina Hill" and hiding them in the area called "Cetatea"(The Fortress).
Bonner, the English traveller,who was deeply impressed by the scenary wrote: "The view produced such a strong impresion over me,that I could hardly control them".
During the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the gold mines were again exploited,
mines and areas were licensed so that new settlesments flourished (such as Rosia Montana, Abrud, Campeni).
The Region has also historical significance, as many personalities (such as Simion Balint, Avram Iancu) got inoved in the emancipation movement from 1848.
We want to promoting Tourism in Rosia Montana !
