Cetatea Taraneasca Reviews & Ratings
Saschiz Citadel dating from the 15th century is an imposing building, dominating the valley where the village and the lutheran St. Stefan church are situated. Nowadays a ruin, with outside walls and towers still standing, it used to be a flourishing trade hub competing with nearby Sighisoara citadel (which is wonderfully preserved). The acess road is unpaved making it rather difficult to reach the citadel. Once there the landscape is beautiful offering professional and amateur photographers the opportunity to take beautiful shots of the valley and the serpentine road crossing through.
Great! Must see
Good views, nice walk but pity the path is not maintained
Great place to visit in warm weather. If you like walks in the nature, try not to miss this place.
Wild place, hard to go there but a lot of history hidden for the civilisation
