We drove to the village and climbed up to the church. I am in my early 70’s but the climb was relatively easy. The views are breathtaking and the building was constructed in the 1100’s. There are plaques bearing the name of German soldiers who...More

We were staying in the village and everyone said that we must go up to see this. It was well worth the climb with beautiful views over the village.

This Romanesque church was built in 1223 and hasn't had any major alterations. It's located on a rocky hill above the town. Quiet with broad views in all directions.

If you are in the area this is definitely worth the climb to get there. The views are just breathtaking. The cost is equivalent to a couple of pound so worth the money.

A short walk from where we were staying - easy climb and breathtaking views. Such a peaceful area too. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Cisnadioara village. Only 7 lei entrance charge.

We climbed up to the church and we found rest area along the climbing steps, where you could sit on a bench and enjoy the view. Autumn is great because of the colours. The church is unique and they do shows and plays there.

It costs 7 lei to go up here - pay at the gatehouse. The walk up through the shady path was lovely and a viewing platform is being constructed part-way up giving lovely views of Cisnadioara. Once at the top we were amazed how much...More

This church is really beautiful in it's simplicity and atmosphere. It was a hot day when we visited having walked from Cisnadie. So we found the many steps up to the church a little challenging on our already tired legs. When we reached the top...More

I really have no idea. It certainly is an active working and worshipping church so the answer is probably yes but I have no idea who you should approach. Probably your best bet is to enquire through your accommodation. They... More
