Star Fort Oradea Romania

 A poem written in 1241 describes the conquest and setting aflame of Oradea Fortress during a Tartar-Mongolian invasion. The Sequel to the Lyon Council (1245) spelled out a coherent policy of central European, Catholic states against the Tartar threat, and Oradea Fortress was rebuilt.

A strong heptagonally-shaped medieval fortress was erected in this spot in the 14th century, and Pope Boniface IX (1356-1404) "conferred a privelege" to the fort's cathedral in 1401, making it a pilgrimage place for Christians all over Europe.
