Brasov County - Harman Stronghold
In the 15th century, perishioners began constructing thick walls and colossal bastions around their Romanesque church to protect themselves from invaders. The church dates from 1293, with Cistercian influence. New parts were added later to the original church in order to make it more useful to the villagers needs. The chapel contains some delightful frescoes in the Gothic style and a pieta from the mid 14th century.
