-This is the hilltop citadel overlooking the city of Deva (Hungarian: Deva, German: Schlossburg,​ Diemrich).\\ 
-It was built in the 13th century. ​ During the 15th century it was owned by Ioannus Corvinus (Johann Huniad). ​ In the 16th century the authorities decided the citadel was too strategically important and therefore it cannot be the property of any noble family anymore. ​ In the 16th century it was repaired and enlarged, after being besieged several times by the Turks. ​ 
-Unfortunately the citadel remained intact until the 19th century when it was besieged and the armory blew up.  Since then, the castle lies in ruins.\\
