The community dates earlier than 1283, when the first written document testifies for its existence. It was a rich village back then, competing with Medias and Biertan for the leading role across the Saxon region of Transylvania.
The Lutheran church is one of the most impressing pieces of late Gothic architecture. It was built in 1480 and a strong fortification - 9 meters tall walls - was added. The old Gothic chapel was built even earlier, in the 14th century.

The fortified church of Mosna
It probably has the most impressive skyline of all; huge, 9m tall walls, a high tower and a large court will make you get a hint about how Medieval Transylvania used to look like. Because it hasn't yet been included in the UNESCO protected areas list, it is still off path for the mainstream tourists. A great opportunity to enjoy it even more.
If you plan to go out in the evenings, you won't find much within the village itself. Pay a visit to the nearby Medias, pop.55,000, a city better much better equipped with restaurants, terraces and other entertaining facilities.
