Homorod



Atractii

Somewhere in the twelfth century, during the reign of King Geza II, a few hospites flandrenses or Flemish guests have settled on a hillock near the area where the actual Homorod now lies. They were of Germanic origin, but their language was a bit different than those of the Saxons. In the thirteenth century they moved, due to strategic defense security and because the water spring was too far away, to the base of the “hill” (ham) which they then “deforested” (roden) giving their new site the name, Hamerodia, as first mentioned in 1400. The Hungarian version of this name is that the name already existed and that the colonists took the name as they called the nearby flowing river hamar, meaning quickly.
The history says that the stronghold has never been conquered and that the villagers’ strategy when attacked was to send their cattle into the forest and then to run inside the walls of the fortress. It seems that the enemies have unsuccessfully laid siege to the fortress for as long as two weeks until finally giving up.
