The settlement of 2000 years, Rosia Montana is the oldest documented miner settlement known from the roman times under the name of Alburnus Maior. The archeological excavations discovered two temples and other sacred regions from the daco-roman times, a "castellum" of the Dalmatian miners settled down in Alburnus Maior. In the galleries of the mine were discovered 25 roman waxed tables from 131-167. In the roman epoch the official documents within the common people were written on wooden support whereon was turned wax. The most can be found out in the Historical Museum of Budapest.

In Rosia Montana there is the Miner Museum that shows us the way how our forefathers explored gold-ores. The visitors of the museum has the chance to enter a roman gallery. After a 157 stair slope on a inclined plane of 33 degrees and a small galery we may get into the roman galery. Not long-ago it was discovered a roman mausoleum as well unique in Romania. In present the world's eyes are focused to the Rosia Montana.

A Canadian firm wants to open a surface-mine on the teritory of the village as well with the belief that under the settlement there are several tousands of tones of gold. Green Peace and many other associations are alert.
