Teius has two old churches. One of them is the Reformed church, which was built in the XIII century, and the other is the Catholic one, which was built in 1448 by the ruler of Hungary, Hunyadi Janos. This fact is mentioned on the northern gate of the church, which also carries Hunyadi's sign: a crow. The church tower is the original one. There used to be a two-storey monastery attached to the church, used by the Franciscans brought in by Hunyadi. Due to the Reformation or the Turkish assaults the Franciscans left the monastery and the church. The Turks demolished the monastery but did not destroy the church. However, the gothic vault falls in and until 1701 the church has no roof. The Reformed church was in similar conditions. It was Apor Istvan who renovated both churches and rebuilt the monastery to a one-storey building. There is a crucifix from the middle ages in the Catholic church. It was found in the Maros river and until 1937 it stood in the centre of the town. The gothic altar is chopped from three stones, and it was made by Magyarigeni in 1895. Interestingly enough the local people refer to the church as castle, which suggest than in the past a castle must have stood somewhere in the nearby.
