Sighisoara was for many centuries an important commercial and strategic point of Central Europe. It is also one of the seven fortified citadels the Transylvanian Saxons built after their settlement in Central Romania starting with the 12th century. Attested at the end of the 13th century under the German name Schespurch, Sighisoara rapidly developed into a powerful economic and commercial center due to its many craftsmen and tradesmen that fortified the settlement with 14 towers and five artillery bastions in the coming centuries against Ottoman invasions.
