The Church of Streisângiorgiu-Călan

It is an orthodox church, located in the homonymous village, on the outskirts of the town of Călan. Built in the Roman style, between 1313-1314, on the spot of a wooden church dating back to 1130-1140, the church of Streisângeorgiu is one of the oldest mediaeval constructions in Transylvania and Romania, known at present and still functional. The inside preserves murals belonging to three successive stages, the initial one, dating back to 1313-1314, which was renewed in 1409 and 1743. In the 18th or 19th century, a porch was added on the West side, which was demolished during the restorations of 1970.
