The gothic-style Evangelical Church (built in 1495) in the village of Cristian (Evangelische Kirchengemeinde Grossau in German) stands on the site of a 13th century Roman basilica.
The church is surrounded by two rows of walls guarded by five towers (all erected in the 16th-Century).
Two underground tunnels have been dug to permit villagers to flee from the fortress to the forest or to a nearby monastery, in times of siege.
A limited number of campers is allowed to overnight in the courtyard of the fortress.
