On the map of the Romanian Gulag, Gherla is one of the prominent places. Thousands of people, including personalities of the interwar Romanian elite, were imprisoned, and some of them lost their lives in the Gherla prison.

To honor the memory of those who suffered in Gherla during the period of political detention, ÎPS Father Archbishop and Metropolitan Andrei took the initiative to build a memorial. In this regard, the Gherla Memorial Association and the Holy 40 Martyrs Monastery were established to include the memorial complex. It is built on Cărămidăriei Hill near the city of Gherla, in the area where there was a mass grave where those who lost their lives in prison were thrown.

La Torre de los Bomberos

La Torre de los Bomberos, originalmente llamada Torre del Cerrajero o «La Pequeña Puerta de la calle del jabón», fue terminado durante la época de Ştefan Bathory, cuando se construyó una torre en este bastión, completada en 1574. La altura de 28,5 metros le otorgaba una buena visibilidad, cumpliendo una condición esencial: la posibilidad de una vigilancia eficaz del entorno para la observación y señalización de incendios. Rehabilitada a través de un proyecto financiado con fondos europeos, la Torre de los Bomberos ofrece una especial panorámica de 360 ​​grados sobre la ciudad. La entrada al objetivo es gratuita para los turistas.

Actualmente, está configurado como centro de cultura urbana, presentando diversas exposiciones, objetos y fotografías antiguas, propias de la actividad de extinción de incendios.
