At north of Șimeleul Silvaniei, on the top of mountain Măgura was rising once the stronghold built by voivode Miklós, son of Meggyesi Móric, on a land which was the property of The Meggyesis since 1258. The stronghold is registered in documents in 1319 and ended up the property of The Bátoris branch family by alliance from Șimleu in 1351. It was probably destroyed in XVI century by the Turkish and it remained that way until nowadays. Only in two places the tracks of the stone wall can be seen and here and there the remains of the defense system beneath the ground as well.
