  • This Red Bastion of Prince Gabriel Bethlen where this great prince of Transylvania was born in 1580. It is a single surviving remnant of the Renaissance castle in the former Illye (Ilia) estate. I made also some pictures of the very damaged Classicist styled house from the 19th century which belongs to the Baron Bornemissza family. Now this property belongs to Böjte Csaba foundation ( he is a Franciscan monk)who helps many kids without parents, and they organize different events at this place of Marosillye ,called Ilia in Romanian language. I recommend this place,it is near the main road .
