Mateias Museum is a large building that honors the memory of their fallen heroes in WWI. Monumental stairs climb to the tower which dominates the terrace. It is here an ossuary, a chapel and museum dioramas with scenes inside the front. Built between 1928-1935, by builder Nicolo, after the project architect Berechet Dumitru Ionescu, the imposing mausoleum, made mainly of limestone Albesti, is composed of two bodies: the first, horizontal, houses the ossuary, which are mounted on the wall plates marble with the names of their fallen soldiers, and second, the vertical shape of a tower with turret, leading to a spiral staircase.

This is an overview of

This county has a total area of 6,862 km². The relief can be split into 3 distinctive parts. In the north side there are the mountains, from the Southern Carpathians group - the Făgăraş Mountains with Moldoveanu Peak (2,544 m), Negoiu Peak (2,535 m) and Vanatoarea lui Buteanu peak (2,508 m) towering the region, and in the North-East part the Leaotă Mountains. Between them there is a pass towards Braşov, the Rucăr-Bran Passage. The heights decrease, and in the center there are the sub-carpathian hills, with heights around 800 m, crossed with very deep valleys. In the south there is the northern part of the Romanian Plain.

The main river that crosses the county is the Argeş River in which almost all the other rivers coming from the mountains flow. In the south the main rivers are the Vedea River and the Teleorman River.
