Biertan fortified church, located in the small rural village of Biertan in Romania, is a must-see for travelers exploring the Saxon villages of Transylvania. This 15th-century Gothic church serves as both a monument to the religious importance of the area and a reminder of the strength of the Saxon cultural heritage. The imposing red brick exterior of the fortified church is surrounded by a double wall of walls on three sides and an inner courtyard with four towers. Inside are seven altars, numerous stained-glass windows, and an organ that dates back to 1622. For those looking to explore the area more thoroughly, Biertan is home to several other fortified churches and the village itself is a great place to explore the colorful, rural Transylvania that vampires could only dream of.
