Sibiu's historical and architectural heritage

Piata Mare
The square exists since 1366, when the third fortification belt was completed. During the Middle Ages, the square was the stage of the most important events of the city’s daily life, such as public gatherings but also executions.
Piata Mica
The square is divided in two distinct parts from the Ocnei Street going down under the Liar’s Bridge to the downtown. The northern and estic parts follow the outlines of the second girdle of walls having a circular shape.
Piata Huet
The square was formed on the line of the city's first fortified precinct. The enclosure itself dates from the late twelfth century, the existence of the prepositure in 1191 being an "ante quem" term for dating today's area of the square.
