Limes-ul roman de pe Munţii Meseș (RO)
The Roman limes from the Meseș Mountains (EN)

  • On the Meseş Peak but also to the basis of the mountain, the Romans built a complex defensive system consisting of small soil fortifications, "burgus" type walls, defensive and signalling towers and also waves with grooves (clausurae) or walls.
  • The defense towers, earth walls, ditches and stone walls on the Meseș Mountains are the most important vestiges of Roman military architecture on the territory of Zalău and its vicinity.  They represent the Roman "limes" from the Meseș Mountains - the frontier of the Roman Empire, walk in the footsteps of the roman soldiers who defended the Roman Empire.
