A bit of history-The nearest interesting place-Sacele County

The area has been inhabited since ancient times, the discoveries made following some archaelogical diggings having proved the existence of some Dacian settlements here.

Near Brasov, where the mountain and the plain meet, there is a group of seven villages, the founding of which is related to the legend of the Burzenland, a region established by Teutonic Knights, according to the data supplied on Sacele Municipality Hall website.

After Transylvania was conquered by the Hungarian Kings, following battles taking place between the 11th and the 13th centuries, in 1211, the Burzeland was colonised by Teutonic Knights, a knightly-religious order, established by the Papacy in 1190, on the occasion of the Crusades to the Holy Places, in Jerusalem. Andrew II of Hungary makes an appeal to them to defend the eastern borders of the kingdom against the Cumans, to strengthen his authority in the south-east of Transylvania and to convert to Catholicism the Romanian population of Transylvania. In 1211, he installs the Teutonic Knights in the Burzenland, bestowing on them several privileges, among which the right to establish citadels or cities.

During the Hungarian ruling, the villages were mentioned as ''septem villć valacheles'' (seven Romanian villages). These seven villages currently make up the Sacele etnographical area enclosing four of these old villages, recently become neighbourhoods: Baciu (Bacsfalu), Turches (Turkos), Cernatu (Csernatfalu), Satulung (Hosszufalu). It is a multicultural area, where the traditions of Romanians, Hungarians and Saxons are interlaced, the aforementioned website reads.

Documents about Sacele come to view in 1366, when an act confirms the fact that Louis I of Hungary of the House of Anjou (1342-1382) offers a courtier, with an inheritance right, the lands in the Burzeland located between Timis and Tarlung Rivers: Satulung, Cernatu, Baciu and Turches. The name of Sacele is mentioned for the first time in a letter of Wallachian voivode Vlad the Monk (1482-1495) to the Magistrate of Brasov.

One of the two large communities of mountain shepherds of Transylvania (mocani) lives in Sacele, the other one living in Marginimea Sibiului. They represent local Romanian shepherd communities, formerly associated to the transhumance phenomenon. During the transhumance process, which took place from Sacele to Dobruja,, they established a locality with the same name in Constanta County.

The modern town of Sacele was established in 1950, from the territory of the first four of the following seven communes in the Sacele area: Baciu, Turches, Cernatu, Satulung, Tarlungeni, Purcareni, Zizin (the localities of Baciu, Turches, Cernatu and Satulung having long formed a separated unit, due to their close location).

Sacele was declared municipality on June 6, 2000. At the people's census of 2011, the Municipality of Sacele counted 30,798 inhabitants.

The most important cultural and tourist landmarks are: the "Mocanime" Complex (19th-20th centuries), the Assumption of Mary Orthodox Church of Satulung (19th century), the Assumption of Mary Orthodox Church Complex of Turches (18th-19th century), Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church of Baciu (1808-1809), the Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church Complex of Cernatu (18th century), the Saint Archangels Orthodox Church of Satulung (18th century), teh Catholic Church of Turches, the Lutheran Evangelical Church of Baciu, the Reformed Church of Satulung, the Tithe House (16th century) and the Etnographic Museum of Sacele, the Statue of the Unknown Soldier.

The natural landmarks of the area are: the Seven Ladders Canyonm, Tamina, the chalky rocks waterfall, the Ice Cave of Piatra Mare Massive, the Bear's Precipice, the Bunloc Hut and Hill. The town of Sacele is the departure point to the huts in the Piatra Mare and Postavaru Mountains.
