Mănăstireni Reformed-Calvinist Church

The Calvinist church from Mănăstireni was built in the 13th century, it is a hall church in the Romanesque style. The furniture, pulpit and coffered ceiling date back to the 18th century and 19th century.

On the south façade of the western tower there is a sundial and two reliefs from Roman times, St. Archangel Mihail slaying the dragon and Melusina- the virgin suckling two snakes- this representation being unique in Transilvania. At the bottom of these sculptures we find two funeral Romans lions. On the northern side we find a simple Romanesque rose, in the shape of St. Catherine wheel.
