This unique church combines several architecture types to join remnants of an old Roman colony with the early Christian paintings of the 8th century AD. You must see it!

The site is maybe the oldest church in the country. It worth visiting because its strange look and the controversy about its origin. The church is probably built on the ruins of a roman temple. The inside pillars are probably remains of a pagan altar to the god Mars, possibly dedicated to the general Gaius Longinus.

If you visit Hunedoara, make sure you stop and visit Densus Church. it's a very interesting building, made of recycled Roman stones - taken from a former Roman city nearby. In case the church is closed, ask for the local priest - he is more than happy to show the place and share with you some of the local history.

Very interesting site, easy access, good roads. It could benefit a lot from a specialised guide, or even from information-boards placed on site. We had to search it on Wikipedia in order to discover it's history and legends...
