Bruiu (German: Braller; Hungarian: Brulya) is a commune located in Sibiu County, Romania. It is composed of three villages: Bruiu, Gherdeal (Gürteln; Gerdály) and Șomartin (Martinsberg; Mártonhegy). Each of these has a fortified church.
Built by the local Transylvanian Saxon community, the village church was first attested in 1307. Initially built as a Romanesque basilica, it was transformed in the 15th century, when Gothic elements were added.
