RICHIȘ

Accession: Richiş is located on DJ 141B, 5 km from Biertan [I44].   The village of Richiş is surrounded by terraced hills on which the vine was once cultivated. The fruitful land favorable to agriculture and viticulture brought the well-being of the locality, hence the name "Reichesdorf-Richvini-Richiş" ("The village of the rich"). The rich people boast that they are a rich village, that they are a Saxon village, that they are full of foreigners - Germans, French, Dutch - moved to them in the village. The rich people boast of a church removed from the patterns of Saxon fortified churches. They say that it was a monastery and that the Cistercians from Cârţa built it. Legends are many from the beginning, to the pelican on the coat of arms, and even to the Russian soldiers who came to them in `45. They also have a perfect storyteller, old Schaas, the curator of the church. tel .: +40/269/258 429, address: Richiș, no. 87   The Richiş evangelical church, built in the 15th century.
