  • In the century XIII is installed in Transylvania many settlers German, that is benefited from a statute specific, and came to form a community very strong of craftsmen, farmers and merchants. Being continuously subjected to Ottoman and Tatar invasions were fortifying all their cities, and in smaller communities, churches, in order to accumulate food and can withstand long periods of siege. Of all the existing fortifications at present, seven have deserved to be considered world heritage by UNESCO: Biertan, Câlnic, Dârjiu, Prejmer, Saschiz, Valea Viilor and Viscri. We had the opportunity to visit Biertan; the rest could not visit them; But if we were in Cristian and Harman, which I do not understand very well because they do not form part of the select group, since no lacks merit. In general, are all very similar, but each one has its own identity: a central Church, surrounded by one or more defensive walls, usually of considerable thickness, with towers and bastions, and all dependencies in the interior of the enclosure. Visit schedules and entry prices vary from ones to others, so you must find out previously. You should visit at least two or three of them to get an idea of life at that time.
