About Corvin Castle

Corvin Castle, also known as Hunyad Castle or Hunedoara Castle, is a Gothic-Renaissance castle from Hunedoara County, Romania.

The castle was built in the fifteenth century by John Hunyadi (Iancu de Hunedoara).

As one of the most important properties of John Hunyadi, It became a sumptuous home, not only a strategically enforced point.

In the castle yard, near the 15th-century chapel, there is a well 30 meters deep. According to the legend, this fountain was dug by twelve Turkish prisoners to whom liberty was promised if they reached water. After 15 years they completed the well, but their captors did not keep their promise. It is said that the inscription on a wall of the well means "you have water, but not soul".
