FORTIFIED CHURCH FROM VALEA VIILOR – UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE

FORTIFIED CHURCH FROM VALEA VIILOR – UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE

The way from the main road up to Valea Viilor village is glamorous. After a few kilometers walking in the forest and through the hills, Valea Viilor village welcomes us always clean, with its Saxon houses. The lean, reddish Tower of the Gothic church contrasts strongly with white fortification walls surrounding it. The church from Valea Viilor was built in Gothic style in the early 15th – 16th centuries. The church’s altar is from 1779, and the priest’s stall is from 1526. The church from Valea Viilor is defended by a seven meters high wall, with firing mouths. Four of the watch towers were preserved until today. From the heights of the church’s tower we have a superb view over one of the most beautiful villages inhabited by the Saxons in Transylvania, an area included in the UNESCO World Heritage.
