Located on the Cora Hillock, the fortress was founded at the end of the 4th century A.D. The name of the fortress, of Celtic origin, derives from the presumed founder, Caspios Aegyssos. At the beginning of the 2nd century A.D., the fortress was included into the Danubian limes, becoming later a military centre and an Episcopal residence. The urban life of Aegyssus fades away in the first quarter of the 7th century. The area is once again inhabited during the 10th-11th centuries, but after its massive destruction in the 11th century, the settlement relocates towards the base of the fortification.

During the 7th century, the Greeks from Milet settled in Cape Dolosman and founded Polis Orgame, the first settlement on the current territory of Romania mentioned in an ancient source. An impressive funerary complex that was found here dates back to the ancient period; two kilns for pottery craft have also been found on the eastern cliff. The fortress has an apparently triangular shape, with eight towers, six bastions and two main gates.

Is situated 2 km from Enisala, on a limestone hill that dominates Babadag lake and Razim lake. The fortress was built in the 14th century for military purposes – to monitor the access by water and by land of the Genoese merchants, who monopolized the navigation on the Black Sea. Between 1397 and 1418 the fortress was part of the defensive system of the Romanian State. It was abandoned due to the advancement of the Turkish domination north of the Danube mouth, and also due to the sand seams that separated Lake Razim from the Black Sea.

Is located 2.5 km East of Murighiol village. The Roman Byzantine fortress has 15 towers, three gates and three defense ramparts. The ruins found here include a paleo-Christian basilica with a martyr’s crypt, the Thermae and the gates.

Near Babadag Lake, 2.5 km from the town, on a high promontory known as “The Fortress”, the archaeologists found a settlement that dates back to the First Iron Age. The materials discovered here and the stratigraphic observations made possible the definition of the Babadag culture, characteristic to the istro-pontic area.

emerged as a Heracletic’s colony by the oracle’s orders in the same time that Amyntas became ruler of Macedonia. Unlike Tomis and Histria which were Miletian colonies, Callatis had dorian origins and was founded by the greeks which came from Heracleea Pontic. In the 4th Century BC the citadel passes an economic and socially – political boom proved by the written parchments as well as the archeological discoveries. The citadel has a rural land which is used for agriculture, its workshops work around the clock and are granted a democratic regime like the State-Citadels in the Megara. Strong walls are raised to protect the citadel from mainland and harbors are built to protect it from the sea.
