Codlea is assumed to have been a one-street settlement in the time of crusades, with an Evangelical church in its centre square.

The towerless church was built in the XIII century, and is the largest fortress church in the region. Following the 1432 Turk raids it was surrounded by a triple wall ring and a water-jump. It burned down in 1685 and 1701. The majority of the walls and the wheeler's tower were demolished in the XIX century. Three towers remained: the weavers' bastion, the coopers' tower, and the blacksmiths' tower.

The latter became a 65m high bell tower housing four bells, the oldest one dating back to 1477. There are pillared corridors and store-rooms on the inside walls. The ceiling of the church with its 252 tiles was made in 1702, the organ in 1709.
