The two-story bastion was built in the first quarter of the 16th century and served as a passage for soldiers commuting between the city and the tower.

  • I had a great stroll behind the wall in the evening time . It was quite and relaxing . Absolutely enjoyed this area .  more »
  • It accessed by the beautiful paseo de După Ziduri, that runs parallel to the Creek Spurcata. The bastion was built in the mid-16th century, forming part of the defensive wall of Brasov, and lies between the bastion of blacksmiths and the marroquineros. At the beginning of the 19th century it suffered significant damage, due to flooding and was restored between 2003 and 2004. It currently houses a section of the History Museum of Brasov. The bastion communicates with the White Tower, from where a magnificent view, is enjoyed by a steep staircase.

  • Place little explored the city, but it has a peculiar beauty especially at night. Verging on a small Creek, lit a bucolic way, you find a path that borders the Park, and from where stairs to climb the Hill. The visual night is breathtaking. Definitely worth the effort to see the city from a different angle. Is not more than 10 minutes from the central square.
