The Brașov Fortress is located on a hill, 64 m above the city of Brașov, at 651 m above sea level. The hill's eastern side belongs to Old Brașov and its western side to Bolonya. The Fortress was built in wood in 1524 and it contained a semi-circle tower surrounded by a wall. In 1529, Petru Rareș the Moldavian vajda who supported king John conquered and demolished the citadel of Brasov that took king Ferdinand's side.
The castle is situated near the village’s Protestant church, by the banks of the Aranyos river. The castle was first mentioned in a document from 1268, when it was owned by the Gerendi family. In 1597 due to Turkish invasion they lost the ownership. The estate with the castle became the property of the Jósika family and the Sarmasaghy family.
The extremely ruinous castle with its neoclassical façade and a couple of neighbouring farm buildings appear on the left side of the European route E60 travelling from Târgu-Mureș to Sighișoara. Today, this is a barren place, although once it was surrounded by a grove, the size of 120 cadastral acres.
