The Lutheran church of Neudorf (rom. Nou Sasesc) was built in the 14th century. It is said to have been built on the hills of the village to protect it in case of attack. The gothic church impresses with its architecture and living traditions, which have been authentically preserved over the years and invite you to visit it. In the past, the village also had its own brass band, which played at masses. Today, unfortunately, we can no longer hear them, but we can see some of the instruments that used to be used and a shelf full of books from which they took their melody. According to some sources, only the bell remained from the old church after the Tatar attack, but it was too big to be transported to the new church. This fact led to the melting down of the bell, which resulted in the three bells that are in the church today. However, other sources say that one of the bells was brought in the 16th century and that one of the bells was sent from Canada by former Saxons. Since then, every Saturday at 3 o'clock the bell is rung to tell the inhabitants of the village that they must go to church the next day. Some sources say that after the attack of the Tartars, all that was left of the old church was the bell, but it was too big to be transported to the location of the new church. This fact led to the melting of the bell, from which were made the 3 bells present today in the church. But other sources say that in fact, one of the bells was brought in the 16th century, and one of them was sent from Canada by some former Saxon locals. Since then, every Saturday at 3 o'clock, the bell is rung to inform the people of the village that the next day is a day of going to church.
