Mikó Castle is a historical monument located in Olteni, Bodoc village on the left side of the Olt river, built in 1827 in classicist style. The castle was named after Mikó Miklós, a count who, according to the legend, built the castle out of the stones of a former, nearby demolished fortress, called Herecz. Archaeological excavations attest to the fact that the whole building was built on the walls of the Roman fortress, which once was here.
Miko Castle is unique in Transylvania thanks to its well-preserved wall painting series, which capture scenes from social life or evoke scenes from the Napoleonic War - the source of inspiration for this Transylvanian building being the Elysee Palace in Paris, the former residence of Napoleon.
