The Fortified Evangelical Church Cisnădie, St. Walpurga, was built at the beginning of the 13th century as a Romanesque basilica. In the first half of the sixteenth century, the church was transformed into a Gothic style. The devastating Turkish attack in 1493 mobilized the community to solidify the church. Many towers and bastions have been erected to increase people’s safety.

We leave Cisnădie and head to Sadu. Our trail takes us up the Prislop Hill, located above the village of Sadu, from where we will admire the whole village, the Sadu Valley and even the city of Sibiu, in the distance. The route then descends to the old terrace of the mocănita used for the transport of logs from the Sadului Valley. Our route takes us on the right side of the Sadu Valley, until near the Râul Sadu Village. From here, the route uses another former terrace to Sadu, on the left side of the Sadu Valley, where will admire the Sadu Valley and the forested peaks that border it.
We end our trip in a delicious manner – a visit at The Henning Family, who are happy to welcome us into their authentic Saxon household. We will get to taste Mrs. Hennings well-preserved Saxon recipe for Hencklesch, and Mr. Henning will share with us his technique of making tiles.
