In Stejărișu / Probstdorf there is a well-preserved fortified church. The Construction began in the 15th century. The church is surrounded by two ring walls and has two fortified towers. Above the nave, a half-timbered fortified storey was integrated into the castle complex. After the original church had to be abandoned together with the surrounding village due to persistent flooding, it was rebuilt for defence at the beginning of the 15th century because of the Turkish invasions. The Stejărișu / Probstdorf fortified church was part of the project "18 fortified churches", where it was extensively renovated in 2012 and opened for visits. Today, our curator proudly guides the numerous visitors through the fortified churches, climbs with them the narrow stairs of the bacon tower and tells funny and thoughtful stories from the past.
