Medieval Heritage of Transylvania: Sighisoara Citadel & Fortified Villages

Adela With: Adela 14
Several settlements in South-East Transylvania are known as 'Pearls of Transylvania' due to their Saxon (Germanic) heritage. Built in the 12-13th century, these settlements are now part of UNESCO heritage because of their importance and very well preserved architectural beauty. Among them, Sighisoara Citadel is a 'must see' sight, along with the fortified villages!


Moments to expect

    The UNESCO Sighisoara Citadel is Europe's best preserved and still inhabited medieval fortress. Built on top of a hill overlooking Transylvania's hills, German influences are heavy in these parts. I will show you colourful houses, details and stories so you can see the charm of Sighisoara!

  • Mosna Fortified Church

    Recently restored, the fortified church in Mosna is one of the most beautiful in Transylvania. We have added it in our itinerary to support restoration works and to learn how these abandoned communities are trying to come back to life!

    The village of Biertan is well known for its towering church that can be seen in the distance. It's a real fortress with lots of interesting stories: the Bacon Tower, the Marriage Prison, the Catholic tower, the best fortified door in Transylvania - curious to hear them?
