Limanu cave is located in the southern part of Romania, the village Limanu. Limanu cave is not far from the village.

Prominent historian Vasile Parvan Keiris identified the cave as being located in the Gura Dobrogea area, but new studies indicate rather Limanu cave as the underground maze that Dacians used it to hide from the Roman proconsul Marcus Licinius Crassus.

Testimony about this very important historic event we get from Cassius Dio’s history, which relates to ‘Romanian history’ Keiris an entire episode about the cave, that relates it was so huge that even the Titans had taken refuge there after the defeat against the gods.

In the years 29-28 BC, the Roman proconsul warrior undertook an expedition to come to the aid of Roles, which were in conflict with King Dapyx. The fortress was conquered, its inhabitants fled, taking their belongings with them, to Keiris cave, a vast maze that has multiple entrances.

Crassus, however, found them all and he built. The prospect of starvation led locals to surrender. After the conquest, the two men continued to attack other kingdoms, regardless of the policy which they had against the Roman Empire.
