Brasov - The Catholic Church
When the treat of Turkish expansion became evident in the 15th century, the inhabitants of Brasov began to fortify the town, assigning the defense of each bastion to a particular guild. Of the original seven bastions, the best preserved is the Weavers' Bastion or Weberbastei (Bastionul Tesatorilor) at Str George Cosbuc 9. A small history museum contains a model of the medieval citadel and charts the history of Brasov's guilds.
The Catholic Cathedral it is the masterpiece work of Iosif Carol Lamasch, built in pure Baroque style.
