Known as the true fortress of Vlad Tepes, the one in which he robbed robbers and traitors, the Poenari fortress is located about 25 km north of Curtea de Arges, near the Vidraru dam. The 1480 steps that must be climbed to reach the fortress are a good opportunity to discover its strategic position, protected from access by any passer-by.
The view you will discover but once on the plateau is beautiful. Built in the Byzantine tradition, the fortress is in the middle of several legends. One of them says that the boyars from Targoviste, scared by the harshness of the ruler Vlad Tepes, gathered in secret and arranged the destruction of the ruler, plotting to capture him alive; but their plan was revealed by Vlad Tepes who turned against them.
