Sibiu's historical and architectural heritage


No. 15, Xenopol Street

Str. Xenopol nr. 15

16th-18th century

The rural type house is formed of a basement and a ground floor, with the shorter wing looking onto the street. It displays three windows protected by adjustable slat shutters. It preserves the medieval cellars with semi-cylindrical arches.

It is the oldest house on this street.
Josef Drotleff’s printing house functioned here between 1850 and 1877.

Joseph Drotleff is my greatx3 grandfather. I would be interested if there are any relatives still Romania who would like to make contact. I live in Australia and currently looking at this side of the family.
