Restoration works at the bacon tower

This year’s construction site at our bacon tower is underway. Managed by our fabulous friend Sebastian Bethge from the foundation of fortified churches (Fundatia Biserici Fortificate) and in cooperation with the Saxon community of Movile (HOG), the north tower of the medieval ensemble is being restored only under consideration of the heritage protection laws. The use of materials which do not harm the masonry and which are used successfully since centuries is obligate.

Thus, we are very happy about the supply of thousands of roof tiles which have been manufactured in an historical tile work project in Hozman down the HartibaciuValley. Special thanks go to Maria and Catalin from Movile for your engagement for the conservation of our fortified church!
