West of Vărșag, at the confluence Târnava Mare and Tartod rivers, at an altitude of 848 m, was probably built around the XI-XII centuries, the Tartod fortress. Archaeological research from 1960 it is assumed that Tartód ,Budvár, Kustaly, Firtos and Rapson fortress were part of the defense system built by the Hungarian kingdom, to stop eastern peoples.

At the end of XII century it lost its importance, was abandoned and the forest put recapture the territory. Following the blue line to climb up and here and there we see the ruins of the fortress.
