Villages[edit]

Cuciulata[edit]

Cuciulata village was first attested in a document of 1372 as Vila Roczolod. It also appears as Kucsalota (1589), Kucstulata (1637) and Kociulata (1648). It is located on the south banks of Olt River at the base of the Perşani Mountains, and is crossed by Lupşa Creek. The road DJ104 passes through the village center and DC20 road connects Cuciulata to Lupşa village. Archaeological excavations have shown the existence of a settlement in this place in the Bronze Age. The ruins of a 1st-century BC Dacian stronghold have also been discovered. Among the monuments in the village are a wooden church dating from 1700-1752 and a stone Orthodox church from 1784-1791.
