The gothic cathedral is impressive with a huge pipe organ. You can climb the stairs to the top of the tower. There are a lot of stairs, but you can see the whole town from there.

Lovely piece of history of medieval Sibiu. Provides good view of the city. Do give your self ample time to stroll around Piata mare, mica and huet to cover all aspects of this medieval past.

Considered the oldest existing building in the city, it is only the first gate tower of fortifications preserved and dates back to the turn of the century XII or XIII.
