The Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Ațel was built around 1380. At first it had a central flat-bottomed vessel that communicated to the side ships through three oval archways, and a bell tower above the central ship. In 1460 an oval wall was built around it. Defensive arrangements lasted approx. 50 years, until 1500. It was provided with two rows of walls with defense towers, of which only a few fragments remain.

The gate-tower is located in the south-east. Particularly interesting is the western Gothic portal. Inside the church we can admire the richly ornamented chalice and the altar built in 1792 by master Johann Folbarth in Sighisoara in baroque and rococo style.
