Berea was first mentioned in written documents in 1204. Its most important tourist attraction is the Calvinist church that dates back to the Middle Ages and has been rebuilt several times since. During its 1993 renovation, the only two medieval frescoes of the county were discovered here. The first, more recent one is an inscription that reports the 1766 renovation. The other, older one is also on the northern wall and is a rare representation „Blessed Virgin in a mantle". The red robe is held by two angels, while two smaller angels are crowning her. Her hands are held in prayer and humans can be seen under her robe, on the right side. The left side's painting is deteriorated. After the fresco was cleaned, another layer of even older painting was discovered. Its deterioration might have been the reason for the XVth century fresco's existence.
