Castra of Hoghiz

The castra of Hoghiz was a fort in the Roman province of Dacia.[1][2] The fort was built, in the 2nd century AD, on the left bank of the Olt River, at a place where a Dacian settlement existing already in the 2nd century BC was unearthed.[1][2] The fort and the nearby village were abandoned in the 3rd century AD.[1][2] The ruins of the castra are located in Hoghiz, Romania.[1][2]
