The Roman Chapel or “Rotonda”:

Historical monument LMI Code: HD-II-M-A-03 316 Date: XI - XII
The circular plan and building material (brick and little reused Roman stone river), the Roman church of Geoagiu is a total rarity in the Roman religious architecture of Transylvania. In literature there are few references to this unique monument of worship.

The inner diameter of the church is 5.5 m and length (vessel and apse) of 7.50 m indoors and 9.50 m outdoors. Around the Rotonda is an old medieval-early necropolis.
The Rotonda is the only construction in the country that is still standing and can be seen.

In 2005, the archeological excavations revealed two treasures, not yet opened to public.
