Pope Celestin III gave the Saxons permission to organize "the German church beyond the forest" in 1191. The Saxon settlers named their colony Villa Hermanni. Founded on the site of the former Roman village of Cibinium, Sibiu (Hermannstadt to the Saxons, Nagyszeben to Hungarians) has always been one of the leading cities of Transylvania. The historic centre has many fine old churches as well as the remains of the original Saxon Bastions that formed the town's fortifications.
