Viscri Fortified Church

I took lots of new photos this weekend, but they are going to have to wait until I finish my Romania series. I haven’t for instance shown the most beautiful fortified church I visited yet. So here it is: Viscri Fortified Church (Biserica fortificată din Viscri). Like most of the others, it was built by the ethnic German Transylvanian Saxons. It was built in the 13th century, originally as a Roman Catholic church, but it became Lutheran following the Reformation. It is one of the fortified churches which have been listed as a UNESO World Heritage Site.

Prince Charles bought and restored some houses in the town of Viscri about 15 years ago as part of his initiative to promote sustainable tourism.
