A truly modern building in a town where the majority of buildings date from the 15th century and earlier, St Joseph’s was built in 1894, after the demolition of the Franciscan convent (pre-1723 its was Dominican). The Church was designed by a Sighisoara architect Letz and has an organ made by Kerl Einschenk in 1908.

The church underwent a major restoration in 1984 following a fire on 22 March 1983 and is rather plain and ordinary when compared to the other churches but it’s still certainly worth a look inside as you pass.

Beautifully illuminated at night.
