Brasov County - Cincu Fortified Church
In the valleys between Fagaras and Sibiu are more secluded Saxon Villages: Hosman (Holzmengen), Dealu Frumos (Schonberg), Meringhindeal (Mergeln),  and Cincu.
At Cincu (Gross-Schenk) the citadel church has a beautiful altarpiece of sculpted and polychromed wood.
Its tempera paintings were created by a workshop in Sibiu.
A small intermediate panel depicts various saints. An inscription on the central panel dates the paintings to 1521.
