A fortified church is a church that is built to play a defensive role in times of war. The south-eastern Transylvania region in Romania currently has one of the highest numbers of existing fortified churches from the 13th to 16th centuries. It has more than 150 well preserved fortified churches of a great variety of architectural styles (out of an original 300 fortified churches). They are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage.
This style of construction appear in the southern areas of Transylvania, from the necessity of the german communities, to defend in front the ottomans attacks which was a permanent danger for them. Such churches were specially designed to incorporate military features, such as thick walls, battlements and embrasures.
