Severin Fortress

The medieval name of Severin Fortress has several origins; it comes from the name of either Septimius Severus Emperor or Saint Severin de Noricum, a protector saint of the Latin Church during the Middle Age. The ruins, which can be seen nowadays, resulted from two precincts that existed at that time: one indoor and one outdoor, the exterior one being surrounded by a pit. After excavations, several square towers were discovered; a wall of the northeast tower with height of 11 m, length of 9 m and width of 2.5 m is still preserved these days.
