Saint Martin church is one of Brasov's oldest buildings. In 1395 King Zsigmond went to mass here. On one of the old doors the year 1522 can be seen, while the church bell has the following inscription: "Magister Andreas de brash, anno 1521." According to historians the first occupants of the old monastery were the Franciscan monks who were expulsed by the ever growing Lutheranism. The building that was assumed to be a monastery, today the parish building, might have functioned as the first mayor's office, where Mircea cel Batrân and Zsigmond Luxemburgi signed an alliance in 1395. The church acquired its present day look in 1792 when it also doubled in size. The inside decorations date back to the same period.
