Valea Viilor



Atractii

The main attraction of the village is the evangelical church which belongs to the UNESCO world cultural heritage. The name of Valea Viilor comes from the fact that the villagers excelled at making wine, giving rise to the Romanian name meaning "Vineyard Valley". However, the historical documents first mention Valea Viilor in 1305 as land owned by the Apafi noble family. An old document refers to the village under the name of “terra Baromlach” which in Hungarian means "the land of the cattle". The Saxon name roughly translates to "snake hole". As to whether the place was swarming with snakes or full of cattle is still unclear.
The present-day gothic church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and was built in the fourteenth century. The church is special due to its small size and complex network of ribs on the vaults of the nave and the choir. The small nave has a vault supported by seven pairs of pillars that are attached to the side walls.
Over the well there is a Romanesque font. Located on the north wall of the choir is a Eucharist shrine which has a Vir Dolorum on its tympanum – “Man of Sorrows” - an iconographic theme depicting Jesus in the tomb showing his wounds. The baroque altar is decorated with sculptures created by Johann Folbarth of Sighișoara in 1779.
