  • Located deep within the heart of the village of Biertan (Sibiu County, Transylvania, Romania), the Biertan Fortified Church (also known as “Biserica Fortificată din Biertan” or “Kirchenburg von Birthälm”) forms a pivotal part of the “villages with fortified churches in Transylvania” entry in the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Built by the ethnic German Transylvanian Saxon community between 1486 and 1524, during the times of the Kingdom of Hungary, it is affiliated with the Evangelical Church of Augustan Confession in Romania. Secured by three sets of walls, it is truly a marvel to behold and a genre-definer on its own when it comes to fortified churches.
