Lisa: The Charm of a Commune



Commune Lisa is situated in the southern-western part of Brasov county, in the depression of Fagaras, at the bottom of Fagaras Mountains. The component towns are: village Lisa - centre of the commune, village Breaza, village Pojorta, all being located in an unique landscape, with fresh, unpolluted air. Tourists who wish to come here can visit the Ruins of Negru-Voda Fortress in Breaza, Urlea Cabin and Urlea Lake, the holiday villages Lisa and Breaza, the tourist area Lisa-Breaza and La valtori (whirl) in Lisa, an old mechanism for washing fabrics using force spinning.

History and datin (customs)

The first historical record is a document dating back to 1527. However, it is known that the village is much older than that. Many of the old customs of the local people are still celebrated nowadays under the name of datini. These customs are organized by the Town Hall of Lisa throughout the entire year and are connected to the most important events from the life of the community: the Heroes` Day? Ispas; the Groups of Lads, on the occasion of the winter holidays and children`s carols on the occasion of Christmas; the local custom "Datul în strai de Anul nou" (throwing people in the air using a traditional blanket) and the Herods, on the first day of the year. On holidays the young people dress up in folk costumes and the groups of young men, specific to Tara Fagarasului, attend a festival where they present their repertoire.

Charm of the commune

"I want to thank the visitors from the country and abroad for having had the curiosity and desire to find out more about us. Some of them came to identify business opportunities of any type, reason for which the local public administration showed transparency. All those who want to visit our region will surely find at least one thing that would draw their attention and make them willing to discover in person the unique beauty of these places: friendly, hospitable people and the charm of a welcoming commune," said Mr. Sorin Greavu, Mayor of Lisa.

Accommodation facilities

Tourists who come to this area can find accommodation at the local households where they can taste the fresh products coming from the people`s own poultry and animals, they can go horseback riding or on a carriage ride, do hiking on unforgettable mountain trails and can attend various cultural events. They can also find accommodation at pension houses where the owners organize spectacular evening shows with camp fires and folk music and dance.
