Photographer's Note

Rupea Citadel

This photo was taken inside Rupea Citadel (Cetatea Rupea), while a thunderstorm was approaching rapidly. The citadel sits on top of a 120 metre high basalt cliff near the town of Rupea. It was first mentioned in 1324, but the site had already been inhabited much longer before that. In later centuries it was often used as refuge against the plague and Turkish invasion. It was abandoned in 1790, but it underwent restoration about ten years ago.
