Fortified Church Reviews
The sadness of the empty and un-renovated church was balanced by the friendliness of the person keeping it. more »
Danes is for sure the most beautiful, clean and fully flowers village I've seen in Romania. Everything looks great, well take care and, as I heared from people, all is because of the mayor attention..... more »
The church itself and the entire fortification complex around it are astounding! But the state the buildings are in... It's a shame that in a couple of decades, without some serious conservation and restoration work, a lot of the local (and national) history will be forever lost to dust and weeds. I highly recommend visiting it, and awe at what our ancestors were capable of building.
Very nice. About 30 min to see everything. Walk around the church as well as inside, if you want to experience most of the area
