Photographer's Note

Another photo of the the 10-11 Romania TE meeting .
As usual, this is not the only photo of that place-other TE members captured it too. It is funny, according to my opinion, to see different versions of the same place.
The settlement of Cincu (or Schenk, in German) was founded in the 12th century by German colonists on a plateau set between the Olt and Hartibaciu rivers. Its German name, Schenk, comes from the German word for a "pub", called a "Schink". First documented in 1329, the settlement grew quickly in importance and soon became the seat of Schenk.
The church dedicated to The Virgin Mary is the largest Romanesque basilica ever to be found in a Saxon village. Another distinguishing aspect is its topographic positioning on a hill with steep slopes on three sides. This required the church to only need to be fortified on the western side.
