Sibiu's historical and architectural heritage


The Asylum Church

The Asylum Church

Str. Azilului 4

It is a hall-like church built entirely in bricks; the first hospital in Sibiu, attested since 1292 also functioned in this location. The Asylum Church nave has the appearance of a medieval hospital hall which communicated with the nave at the level of the ground floor and the spaces situated on the first floor.
The choir is connected to the nave, continuing it and it is visible from everywhere, the space being sufficient for conducting the religious service.
