Since 1599 as a result of the victory from Selimbar the fortress had gotten under the domination of Mihai Viteazul. Since 1645 under the leading of Gavril Haller it was turned to the modernization of the fortress. In 1658 lack of a strong defense caused the reoccupy by the Turks as its direct consequence Rákóczi György II count of Transylvania ordered the execution at Oradea of the then conductors of the fortress. The Turks occupancy continued until 1683, The building had two parts: the interior fortress, existing today as well having its shape of square with circular tiered bastions and stone walls in square shape with bastions at its corners that is situated at some hundreds of meters.
