The first dates regarinding to Cetatea de Baltă beginning with 1177 we may find in the papal register where it's called "villa Cuculiensis castri". The towers of the reformed church were built in 1060 what had survived the Tartar invasion of 1241 marked by a large scale painted tartar head in it made at the ending of the XIII.th century. While after a document from 1214, on this place King Istvan I. built from quarter-timber and earthwork a fortification which was demolished during the same invasion. In the XIVth century there is another mentioning of a fortification, now the castle Bethlen is the pride of the village.
