    Turnul Chindiei

    In the days of Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler), "Turnul Chindiei" ("The Sunset Tower") was built, becoming the emblem of the town. Petru Cercel ordered the construction of the second Princely House and the Big Church of the Court. It was in Matei Basarab's days that the Princely Houses were repaired and the "Turkish bathing place" was built. In an extension of the main enclosure the St. Friday's Church and Princess Balasa's Houses are to be found, near the ruins of Dionisie Lupu's House.
