Бертанская церковь-крепость

Локальное имя: Biserica Fortificată din Biertan

This Lutheran defensive church was built at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries by the ethnic German community of the Saxons living in Transylvania when the region was part of the Kingdom of Hungary. Currently, along with the neighboring village, the church is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The complex consists of a church standing on a hill surrounded by fortifications, including three stripes of defensive walls. The oldest inner wall with three towers and a bastion comes from the 15th century. Several decades later, a second wall was added with a bastion transformed into a sentry house and a roofed tower. Then, at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries, the whole building was surrounded by an external wall.

When visiting the church, it is worth paying attention to the late Gothic altar in the shape of a triptych. It consists of 28 varnished panels and is the largest altar in the country.
