In Adamclisi Tropheum Traiani Monument, built in 109 A.D., and dedicated to a Roman warrior, is a unique edifice in the Roman provinces due to its size and rich decorations.It is 40m high, and has 54metopes.In fact the Adamclisi word comes from turkish and it means ' the church of man '.Around the Adamclisi monument in 101-102 there were great battles between Romans and Dacians alliend with the Sarmatians.All around the monument there are stone steps and up in the middle there is the statue of a soldier in armour.Till nowdays was preserved only the central part, looking like a huge knoll of earth, and from the 54 metopes remained only 49.Near the monument there are two more relics of this event : a mausoleum of a Roman officer who died in battle, and not far from that, the altar,raised also by Trajan order, in the memory of the soldiers died during this battle.
The stone blocks or metopes
|The fight scenes, showing the braveness of the Romans but also the heroism of the Dacians, were sculpted in bas-relieves on stone blocks ( metopes ), around the monument.||These images also show us the reseamblance between the looks and the clothes of the peasants from mountains and hills from our country.|
The Fortress near Adamclisi
|Adamclisi fortress,is one of the biggest civil Roman settlement from Dobrogea.Built in the same years as the comemorative monument, in it lived those who after the battles settled down on this place.||The Fortress had an impressive public building, civil constructions, towers, defence walls from the stone blocks, streets covered with stone and a sewage system.|
It is one of the most visited turistic sights from Dobrogea. That statue was built in the honor of a great personality who lived in those lands.
It is very interesting.I was amazed of the landscape and the legend.
This monument reprezent the war between the dacians and romans built in honor of the victory.It is very high with the front very iluminated.
Is a beautiful monument very well maintained.Inside there is a true treasure: here are a lot of stone sculptures It says that perhaps there is some gold inside.
