The Church on the Hill

18 available offers

To the north of the Clock Tower you can admire one of the most beautiful gothic-style buildings in Transylvania, the Church on the Hill  which name comes from its location on the School Hill (1,373 ft high).

Initially a Catholic church, it became the main church of the Saxon inhabitants of Sighisoara, who had shifted from Roman Catholicism to Lutheranism after the 1547 Reform. Inside the church you can admire fragments of murals from 1483-1488 and renaissance-style furniture.

You can reach the Church through the Scolars’ Stairs from the School Street and opposite to the church you can find the famous Saxon Cemetery.
