Fortified Church of Harman Tours

The Fortified Church of Harman is located in the heart of Harman village in the Transylvania region of Romania. A visit makes a great day trip from Brasov and is often combined with a visit to the Fortified Church of Prejmer. The church, which dates to 1240, is one of nearly 300 fortified churches in Transylvania. The belfry tower was added to the church in the 14th century and walls were added in the 15th century. The south chapel has been preserved in close to its original state, while the north chapel was rebuilt in the 15th century. The church was originally built as a Romanesque three nave church, but was later taken over by the Cistercians. The interior features traces of different styles and eras.

The fortifications were built to protect the village from attacks by the Ottomans and originally included three walls. Only two walls remain, an outer wall at 4.5 meters high and an inner wall about 12 meters high. Visitors have access to some of interior living spaces within the fortifications, as well as the walkway around the wall, which is still close to its original state.
