Obeliscul - Obelisk of Horea, Clo?ca and Cri?an

2 reviews of Obeliscul - Obelisk of Horea, Clo?ca and Cri?an

Obelisk in memory of the ringleaders of revolt

This obelisk is close to the western gate of the Citadel, and was constructed in the year 1937 in memory of the ringleaders of the revolt that took place in Transylvania between the years 1784 and 1785 against feudal serfdom. They wanted to equate the rights of Romanians and other ethnic groups in the area, since at that time they only supported Catholicism as the religion and peasants were disadvantaged. The obelisk is carved in granite and was made by E. Negrulea Mihaltan.
