About

Built in the 12th century, the fortified church in Cisnădioara is one of Romania’s oldest Romanesque basilicas, preserved almost unchanged, and hosting the oldest church organ in the country.

The legend has it that the village lads used to prove their strength before getting married by rolling uphill the big boulder stones from the monastery yard, gathered there for times of trouble.

Presently the basilica at the feet of Cindrel Mountains comes alive at film projections, concerts or romantic picnics in the moonlight.
