  • Really beautiful church, it's open until 6pm if I'm not wrong and it's a really good place to take photos or even go for a walk.

  • It's a beautiful place to visit, take a walk or even chill out a little. The church is beautiful in the inside just like on the outside. It's not a really busy place, also it depends on the time.

  • One of the many fortified churches in southern Transylvania, the biggest of them, preserved well after hundred of years.

  • Beautiful Church that can be seen from far away. Definitely the main point of attraction in Medias. It is one of the eldest churches like this in Romania and full of history. The location shows a bit off on Google maps, because it is not actually there. It should be where the small plazza shows. Hope this will be changed soon on maps.
  • Nice place to visit, beautiful old catholic paintings.
  • St Margaret evangelical church, built in Gothic style in 1276, is mostly known for its leaned tower. For now the museum it houses reveals some cool architecture themes of its time.
  • The twins volunteering at the Church provided us with a large pack of valuable information regarding the evangelical site and about the city of Mediaș. The Church is the highlight of the region and has a lot of history to share with the visitors. It's a must!
  • A beautiful church, a true landmark - really well preserved.
