Homorod is known for its wonderful fortress church. The building process started at the end of the XIII century with a small church having a wooden roof, wall paintings and a belfry. The expansion of the church started in 1500. The wall paintings date back to the XIII, XIV, XV century. Christ over the rainbow as well as the picture of the twelve apostles is still to be seen today. The church has a coffered ceiling. In the middle of the ceiling the number 1800 can be seen.

Above the aisle there is the organ. The belfry is almost 28m high. In 1623 a huge fire burnet down the wooden structure of the building. After renovating it they placed the inscription "Anno 1623 dic 13 Aprilis incendio per incuram Andreas Henrich orto conflagrata haec turris restauratur 1626 jun. 19, pastore existente Georgio Vustio" on the church, i.e., April 13, 1623 because of Andreas Henrich's negligence the tower caught fire- it was restored in 1626 June 19, Rev. Georg Wust. They moved the three bells formerly standing on a belfry into the tower. Two protecting walls were built around the tower.

The first was built in the XV century. There are paths on the walls linking the towers to each other.
