Sebiş

Sebiş is a town in Arad County, western Transylvania, Romania. Situated at a 82 km distance from the county capital, the town Sebiş is one of the most important urban centres in the Crişului Alb valley. Consisting of the rural settlements Donceni, Prunişor and Sălăjeni, its administrative territory occupies 61,81 square km in the great Sebiş Basin which is a sub-unit of the Crişului Alb Basin.

The first documentary mention of the locality dates back to the year 1552, while later, in 1746 Sebiş had a market status (opidum Sebes). Donceni was registered in 1439, Prunişor in 1406 and Sălăjeni in 1574.

Until the end of the 18th century Sebiş had been under Osmanli occupation and later under Hapsburg administration. During the latter period the settlement had undergone an accentuated development.

The town's present-day economy can be characterized by a powerful dynamic force with significant developments in all the sectors.

For the tourists Sebiş is the point of departure towards the superior course of the Crişului Alb River, towards the thermal bath in Moneasa and towards the peaks of the Codru-Moma Mountains.
