Comana commune is part of Tara Fagarasului area, located on both sides of river Olt, midway between two national roads connecting Brasov to Sighisoara.
The residential locality is the village Lower Comana which, along with Upper Comana, Crihalma and New Ticusu villages compose the commune.
The mountains bordering it spread towards East and are part of Persani mountains, which
highs reach 1000 m. The climate is influenced by the mountains, obstructing the fast movement of the air.
The area's toponymy contains a lot of names reminding the woods: Groves, Little Beachwood, Glades and Coppices. The area is full of natural monuments such as The Sphinx or the Stone man, The Stone Gates, the caves with funny names: ?The Stronghold' Top? (where they say a fortress used to be once), Monasteries, Frying-pan, Polenta (hiding peculiar stalactites and stalagmites).
The local woods are populated by a large number of animals - deer, wolf, lynx, fox, boar or bear - forming a real natural reserve.
According to the mayor Alexandru Fekete, there are an increasing number of foreign tourists willing to enjoy the beauties of the surrounding or exploit the natural resources.
