CORVINS’ CASTLE

CORVINS’ CASTLE

The impressive gothic construction was built by Iancu de Hunedoara after 1440, the one who was to become Transylvania’s vaivode and Hungary’s governor. In fact Iancu transformed an ancient royal citadel that had been gifted in 1409 to his father, a Romanian named Voicu, by Hungary’s King, Sigismund of Luxembourg. A 30 meters fountain draws the attention in the courtyard. It seems it was carved out by three Turkish prisoners, to whom it had been promised freedom if they had reached water. After 15 years, however, the masters did not fulfill the word. The inscription recalls this event: "The author of this is Hasan, who lives as a slave for the giaours, in the citadel next to the church."
