Sibiu's historical and architectural heritage

 

No. 4, Azilului Street

No. 4, Azilului Street

1292-1760

Description:

The Asylum Church and The Asylum (for old people) were mentioned for the first time in 1292 when the church of the Crusaders Order- “St. Spirit” organized the first hospital for sick and old people in Sibiu. The asylum building has many aisles which form 6 interior yards linked through vaulted narrow gangways. The oldest aisle is placed parallel to “Azilului” Street, dating from the 13th century. Towards the yard, the building has a loggia from one side to the other, a superposed loggia formed by simple arcades on the ground floor, lying on thick rasps and with narrower opening to the upper floor, like windows.
The ground floor rooms are cross-vaulted.
The west side aisles towards “Turnului” Street were built step by step three centuries later. On the entrance gate towards “Turnului” Street the period 1587-1775 is grooved in wood (probably the contruction year).

Special elements:

- in the first yard there is the ledger of a child (T.W.) who died in 1574
- Outside there is the old tower bell. It is the oldest bell heard nowadays in Sibiu: it dates from 1509 and it has the inscription „ad iuva nos deus”. It is 112 centimetres high and 44 centimetres width.

Aș dori să vă întreb dacă mai aveți locuri pentru o bolnava imobilizata la pat
Eu sunt bolnavă de epilepsie și depresie severa și nu mai pot avea grijă de ea

Aceasta pagina nu are legatura cu Azilul de batrani, ci cu cladirea in care acesta isi desfasoara activitatea.
Este un site de istorie locala, care prezinta patrimonial cultural si architectural al orasului, nu institutiile care functioneaza in prezent
