The 269th fortification on my page is Szentágota's church

Nov 17, 2021

Szentágota (Agnita, Agnetheln, Ongenîtlen) is a town in Transylvania, in Romania. It is famous for the fortified church built by the German Saxons of Transylvania.

Szentágota is 37 km from the town of Medgyes (Medias) to the southeast. The Saxons settled there before the first Mongolian invasion of 1241.

Later, Hunyadi János and his son, King Matthias Corvinus contributed to the construction of the fortified church because of the Ottoman peril from the south.
