Informations about the village:

The village of Dârjiu is home to a 13th century fortified church, which is today Unitarian, and is on UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites List.

Dârjiu (Hungarian: Székelyderzs) is a village in Harghita County, Romania and it is situated 18 km away from Sighişoara on a county road.

The fortified church is situated in the center of the locality of Dârjiu and is founded on an old Roman basilica. It was subsequently transformed in gothic style. The fortified church at Dârjiu is well-known due to its murals discovered in 1887.

The villagers keep their grains in the fortress even today. The same with the ham, bacon, lard and smoked pork products, which are kept in the bastions. As concerns the grains, they can take them home every morning but the pork products only once a week.
