The Palaeonthological Reservation Repedea ::

It is situated close to the television relay from Repedea Hill, where there are also an outcrop and some rock quarries, reflecting the limestone rocks and gritstones strongly fossiliferous, belonging to Sarmatian.
Professor Grigore Cobalcescu, from "Al.I.Cuza" University, studied the zone in 1862 and published the study "Repedea's Limestone", where he described the fossil fauna that he had discovered in those rocks. This scientific study is considered to be the birth document of Romanian geology.

The fossils and the limestone discovered here prove that on this territory there was the bottom of the Sarmatic Sea.
