Haller castle made on the top hill near Gîrbău is famous and known by everybody. Much less known is that in the same place was once a roman camp.

Haller's name was related to the name of Wesselényivel from Jibou because of a dispute between them because of some serfs during which Wesselényi occupied the castle and he even took hostages. Haller sued him and Wesselényi was forced to spend 4 years in the prison from Kufstein. The castle survived the attack as well as the communism but it didn't resist in front of the robbery which followed after the events in 1989.

The castle without a master was quickly demolished and was used as construction material.

From the castle built in 1766 which had a chapel and a beautifully decorated gate it remained only the chapel and the fragile roof and its tower, a fountain and the entrance with the family's symbol.

Everything is covered with vegetation. The chapel's interior looks more with a forest and the castle is completely gone.
