Biertan is probably the most famous fortified church in Transylvania. It was a surprise for me to count from Cisnădie towards Biertan at least ten fortified churches. One of the most spectacular was that from Pelişor, Sibiu, also acompaigned by a castle. Returnig to Biertan, I was amazed by the size of the curch. There are still around 65 people (germans) that are members in this curch but only about 20 can move. The curch is used for the sermons once a month and the pipe organ is functional.
