Just one hour drive from Transylvania Airport in Târgu Mureș, 25 minutes from Sighișoara or an hour and a quarter from Sibiu, on one of the valleys that flows from the south into the Tarnava Mare Valley, the silhouette of the fortified complex appear on a small hill in the center of the village.

Biertan with its massive fortified church attracts by its charm and the greatness of the towers, the solidity of the walls and the beauty of the interiors; the prosperity of the inhabitants of 5-6 centuries ago has allowed the construction of this place of worship and its fortification; the relative isolation and economic decline of the last two centuries allow us today to enjoy an authentic medieval atmosphere
