Nopcsa Castle

Hunedoara, judetul Hunedoara

AddressSat Sacel,


Nopcsa Castle was the residence of one of the strangest Transylvanian family and was built with a sober architecture. It can be seen today in the village Sacel between Santamaria Orlea and Rau de Mori, with access to the DJ 686 (county road).

The building is in a advanced state of decay, but still breaths the terrible history of the Nopcsa clan. The castle is about 200 years, but the family Nopcsa, who had here its last residence, is documentary certified in 1367. Former property of the family, the castle of Sacel, reminds of a forgotten world today.

The history of Nopcsa family blends with the past of several noble families in Transylvania. Their names, Nopchia, which means "night", was Magyarized by Laszlo Nopcsa, the man whose mystery was not found out even today. In 1848, Laszlo Nopcsa still considered him as a Romanian and attended the National Assembly of Romanians in Blaj in 1848.

Among the family members there have been prefects of Hunedoara County, Imperial knights of various orders, government advisers and Chancellors of the Court for Transylvania, members of the Royal Ministry, members of the Royal House, deputy chief of the Royal Army Unit, heads over tax, paleontologists, botanicals, directors of the National Theater of Opera in Budapest. All their family was perpetuated each time by a single successor to the male line.
