History and Churches


Sanpetru commune, bordering Brasov, is located at the foot of Lempes Hill, protected by the law as patrimonial piece. Culture disputes nature at Sercaia to increment its value. After the Saxons?s exodus in Germany, the Romanian population is in majority. Sanpetru unfolds nowadays a durable development policy in camps as economy, agro-tourism, culture and history.
The archaeological excavations prove the territory has been inhabited since the Neolithic. After 1211, the settlement has been colonized by the Saxons.

The Evangelic Church

The majestic Evangelic Church of Sanpetru is surrounded by the old walls of the citadel, which remains are still visible. The fortress dates back to 1300 and was rebuilt in 1795. Its own blazonry makes sit special among the rest of the citadels still conserved in other Saxon localities. Inside there is the famous pipe organ, manufactured in 1820 by Johann Thois.
The church is consecrated to St. Peter; every year, on the saint?s day, the citadel celebrates ?Sanpetru?s Days?. In spite of its remarkable archaeological importance, the church has today only 145 parishioners, spiritually guided by priest Klein Peter, who took the holy order in 2006.

The Church as Holly Vessel

The Romanian Orthodox Church ?St. Nicholas? di Sanpetru has a very interesting shape of ark, with a small altar and a semicircular dome. The walls are almost 1 m width, erected in rock and bricks. The internal and external frescoes, realized in 1784 by unknown artists, are the main attraction for the tourists.

A Priceless Patrimony

According to the mayor Ion Rusu, the State?s Archives house documents attesting that 33 Romanian families asked in 1762 for a priest, to celebrate the religious service at the wooden church then. ?I?m proud to lead a commune with such a valuable historical patrimony. The local administration intents to continue assigning funds, in order to conserve the priceless patrimony that makes our pride in the European Union? the mayor stated.
