ABSTRACT. – The Land of Zărand as Metal Spatial Projection.The physical support of the Zărand mental space is represented by the morphology of the region, by the forestry domain (generator of a special type of behaviour and of peculiar occupations), by the mining activity (especially the one related to the gold-bearing veins) and by the historical events that led to the heroic mythology. The stages in the development of the Land of Zărand into an open mental space took place gradually based on the transfer of influence from the Zărand Fortress towards the interior of the mountains, towards the future settlements with role of central place, namely Baia de Criş and Brad.
