Walking Tour Mediaș, Colinele Transilvaniei

We propose a cultural tour focused on the murals - from the pre-Reformation period - of three lesser-known and less visited fortified churches around Mediaș: Dârlos, Șmig, Curciu.

Each church offers surprises both in terms of architecture and painting.
For example, in Curciu, we find murals that belong more to an international Gothic style - found in the noble palaces of the Kingdom of Hungary.
At Dârlos we have a Gothic portal next to a Renaissance portal (and what a simpler way to learn to tell them apart) and a painting of two Orthodox saints (among others).
At Şmig, a small church without a tower, with a large painted surface, where excavation work was also done in the summer of 2022.

(Note: the cover image is for presentation purposes and was taken in the church in Mălâncrav, which is not included in this tour.)

Meeting: 10:00 a.m., in front of the Via Transilvanica stop in front of the evangelical church of Saint Margaret
The experience is designed so that we travel with a minibus. It's a cultural tour, not a hike: we get off, visit the sights, walk around the village, return to the minibus.
