Description

(EN) | The monument was raised in 1937 from the initiative of the ASTRA Cultural Foundation (Alba) and benefited from public funds; it was meant to commemorate 150 years from the peasant rebelion of 1784 - 1785 and was dedicated to the memory of its three leaders, Horia, Cloşca şi Crişan. The monument is composed from a symbolic cell at the base and a large statue of Nike facing east; facing west and towards the IIIrd gate of the Vauban fortress, with the original prison cell, is a bas-relief depiction of the three martyr leaders. The monument was built in granite and is the work of architect E. Mihălţan and sculptor I. Fekete.
