The Goldsmiths Gangway
The Goldsmiths Gangway starts under the tower of the house in the Small Square, at no. 24, located in the Upper Town, descending in steps towards the Goldsmiths Square, located in the Lower Town.
The name of the gangway is explained by the fact that the goldsmiths used to have their shops in this area. Having preserved its medieval aspect since 1567, the picturesque Goldsmiths Gangway can be considered one of the most romantic places in Sibiu.
At the upper end of the gangway there is a defensive tower on the precincts of two fortifications of Sibiu – the Tower of the Goldsmiths Gate – preserved since the 13th century.
