This paper provides a detailed list and description on the main elements of religious cultural heritage of Periam Commune in Romania. In order to promote religious tourism and genealogical tourism, we need to identify man-made resources – particularly Baroque ones, considered unique in this part of the world.The Baroque – a universal, aesthetic concept and phenomenon with periodical, differentiated appearances – took shape in Central Europe in the 17th century. It has been included among the main categories of spirituality and forma mentis: together with Classicism and Romanticism, it is a Utopian type of contemplation of the existence of a fundamental way of living and feeling. The Commune of Periam, an old Romanian locality and port to the Mures River, in the vicinity of Sânnicolau Mare, was attested documentarily ever since 1330. Its main assets are both natural and man-made, but it is remarkable due to its Baroque monuments – the Church John of Nepomuk, the statue of the Holy Gift, and the statue of the Crucifixion.
