Baia Mare

Baia Mare appeared on the map of urban settlements as a result of the exploitation activity of non-ferrous metals; the first reliable information on mining originate from the 14th century, although early medieval activities like this are much earlier, at least from the second half of the thirteenth century.

The community memory records as the first town’s identity card the document from May 29, 1329, through which King Carol Robert (1301-1342) was offering to the Corrardus governor, judge of Baia Mare and Baia Sprie, the forest located between the two settlements for this territory to be populated. Baia Mare appears here as civitas Rivuli Dominarum, the Corrardus judge being the same for Mons Medius (Baia Sprie), too. The document from 1329 was not kept, its content being summarized in a document from 1479.

Sighetul Marmației

18 km east of Săpânța you can find Sighetu- Marmației (being known as Sighetul Maramureşului in the past), first attested in 1326 and as a city in 1352.

Casa Memorială “Stan Ioan Pătraș”

„Născut în anul 1908, în comuna Săpânța din județul Maramureș, într-o familie obișnuită cu prelucrarea artistică a lemnului. Pătraș a fost atras încă din tinerețe de sculptura în lemn, de pictură și de poezie făurite după canoanele creației populare. A început să sculpteze cruci din stejar de la vârsta de 14 ani. În anul 1935, Stan Ioan Pătraș, pe atunci un anonim sculptor în lemn, a început să așeze pe cruci și niște înscrisuri sub forma unor scurte poeme compuse la persoana întâi: epitafuri ironice, naive, de multe ori cu greșeli gramaticale și foarte apropiate de graiul arhaic. La început, sculpta în jur de 10 cruci pe an, materialul folosit fiind lemnul de stejar. În anul 1936, el și-a perfecționat stilul. Crucile au devenit mai înguste și au apărut figurile sculptate în relief, în culori vii.” (sursa: Pop Dumitru Tincu, ucenicul meşterului, 2016)
