Being at the crossroads of nations and civilisations, this region was always under threat. Solution? Fortified churches that are small citadels were people could hide during wars, raids, skirmishes, attacks, and other vagaries of the age.

There are 150 fortified churches preserved in Transylvalnia. Seven of them are UNESCO Heritage Sites. Prejmer is one of them.

The church in Prejmer also contains Transylvania's oldest triptych altarpiece, dating back to 1450.
