If you are interested in history and you like the medieval age, this is a place to visit. The place is a bit off the National Road but it is worthy visiting. As you arrive in the center of the village you will see the cgurch on top of the hill. There's a shop inside where you can buy tickets, maps, boks and different souvenirs.

The ticket costs 10 lei. But this location doesn't inspire anything wow. It seems like a normal but fortified church to me. You can see some beautiful landscapes, but related to the church, to the past there and that's it.

This is really one of the greatest churches in shy village near Medias, in the hear tof Transilvania. You must see it, if you travel around. I recommend accomodation in Richis, in Annas Pension - the green house.

I was with my family. We pay for entrance 10 lei but is for nothing. The church is poorly preserved, a nasty smell inside. I saw other fortresses or churches much more beautiful.

The Church is perched high on a hill in the middle of the village. Walking to the church we passed a number of stalls and I stopped to watch a man hand carving bowls, the items were reasonably priced. The Lutheran Church dates back to the late 15th century has a beauty in the simplicity of the interior decoration. It features painted pews, a pulpit carved from a single piece of stone and an organ. There is an ingenious lock that protects the most valuable goods of the church. We found having a knowledgeable guide really beneficial explaining the history attached to the church.
