Saschiz Fortified Church
Located 9.95 miles from Sighisoara, Saschiz is renowned not only as home to one of Transylvania's finest fortified churches but also as a carpentry and wood-painting center. 
The Evangelical Church of Saschiz was built between 1493 and 1496 by Saxon colonists. The monument is very impressive due to its sheer size and the way the fortifying elements have been adapted to the shape of a church building. From the outside, the church appears to be a bulwark, but its defensive role is surpassed by the beauty of its gothic elements: huge arches, massive buttresses and decorative stone and brick aspects.

Biertan Fortified Church
Located 18 miles from Sighisoara, the Biertan Fortified Church features late-gothic architecture with heavy doors and double exterior walls, the church boasts the largest Transylvanian multi-paneled wooden altar and a remarkable wooden door which once protected the treasures in the sacristy. The altar was built by artisans from Vienna (Austria) and Nurenberg (Germany) between 1483 and 1513. The door, a true marvel of engineering, has a particularly ingenious locking mechanism with 15 bolts that can be simultaneously activated by a key. The mechanism stirred quite an interest at the Paris World Expo in 1900.

Viscri Fortified Church
Located 25 miles from Sighisoara, one of the most interesting Saxon fortified churches is located in the village of Viscri (Weisskirch in German). 
Unlike other Transylvanian fortified churches, Viscri was built around 1100 by the Szekler population and taken over by Saxon colonists in 1185. This explains why this unique gothic church displays a plain straight ceiling rather than a traditional vaulted one.

In the fifteenth century a wall of an irregularly shaped oval contour was erected. Four of the five initial towers are still in place. In 1908, a gate through the west tower was used to allow the crossing of the trunk. That is why the Tower is now called the Knights' Tower.

Now '' Bezidul-Vechi '' village is at the bottom of the lake. The locality consisted of 180 houses where a unique community from a historical and religious point of view lived. Recently Lake Bezid was emptied because of an incident on a bridge that collapsed. The ruins of the old village can now be seen because the bottom of the lake has been exhausted.
