“La Salina” is the brand under which the ISSA wines were born, which glorify the name of the old Roman settlement called Potaissa.

area attractions

After a night spent in our guesthouse and a well-deserved break, you are as good as new and fit for the road. Another one, than you have made in the previous day. Hapily, the area where you find yourself hides a multitude of touristic treasures, which will enchant your sight and enrich your knowledge about the Turda area.

We review them for you, and you will be the one to decide where your steps carry you:

Turda Salt Mine

It is certainly one of the key-attractions of the area, a real salt-mining history museum, included in a list of one of the most spectacular places you can see in the world.

The Durgau pool

Located in the proximity of the salt mine, it proposes a relaxing bath in the highly mineralized water from Durgau-Valea, a suited activity for a burning summer afternoon.

The Turzii Notch

To the adventurers we recommend a hike through the Turzii Notch, which offer the travelers a sinkhole landscape of untamed wilderness, the high and steep rocks being a perfect place for extreme sports;


The ruins of the old Roman castrum, that belonged to the 5th Macedonica Legion, is located on the Citadel Hill plateau, and can be admired in its full splendor, while being transposed into another world where we imagine ourselves as soldiers with spears and shiny helmets, marching over the hills.

Saraturile Ocna Veche

The 6 lakes formed by filling with water of some former collapsed salt mines, known by the name of natural reservation “Ocna Veche Saraturile” is located North of Turda city.

The Scarisoara glacier

The biggest underground glacier from our country is located at a quite close distance from Turda- 127 kilometers, but it’s worth paying a visit to the splendid laid out cave, accompanied by a bunch of authorized guides.
