7th November 2017 - 12:20pm
The fortified and very well preserved church in Prejmer is one of the most important medieval monuments in Transylvania and is a world UNESCO Heritage monument and one of a chain of fortresses in Transylvania. The fortress and church was built by the local peasants as protection from plunderers. The locals lived in villages outside the fortress then when attacked they retreated inside the walls for protection. Each family had an allocated room in one of the four floors of the walls of the fortress. The fortress was designed to withstand any siege, with thick and high walls, bastions, iron gates, mobile bridges and a secret passageway through which the water and food supply of the besieged was assured. It was a very interesting place to visit.
