Visit Presmar Church Village in Transylvania
The biggest fortified church of Transylvania is the one in Presmar. It is bigger even than the famous in Harman. Although there are fortified churches in many parts of the world, this type of architecture is typical only in Transylvania. Construction on the fortified church in Presmar began in the 13th Century by Sisterian order. In the Middle Ages, especially during the times of the Turks, the inhabitants of the village needed more effective protection than just prayers.
This church gives not only ideological protection, several meters thick. A system of very high halls surround the church the wooden stairs and terraces are open in the direction of the churchyard. Towards the outside, there are only battle means, the stairs they too are small number of rooms which gave shelter for each family in the village in case of trouble. Hundreds of people were crowded here at such times; the animals can graze in the yard. Making it difficult to starve out the people of the village, the church itself is a building with transept built taking the Wine Keeps as a model.
Above the intersection of the cross, the tower rises on a square pace. The room of the cross vaults is decorated with rib vaults from the 15th Century. Instead of the sanctuary, there are typical side chapels in the eastern ring. The church collapse two centuries ago but it is valuable altar has been restored recently. The windows are partly pointed, partly arched. The church hold services even today and belongs to the Evangelical Church.
The museum of local history has been setup in some rooms of the fortress. Articles for personal use collected from the church and the village. Have been painstakingly collected and are displayed in the small museum with a homey atmosphere.
