About

The House with Caryatides, also known as the Little Palace, is located on Mitropoliei Street, at no. 13 and it belongs to the late baroque of Sibiu.

The new building, built by the widow of Count Gregorius Bethlen after the year 1786, was placed on the location of an older one, famous for the fact that it was inhabited by the renowned silversmith Sebastian Hann.

Its representative item is a truly spectacular decorative element, from which it actually took its name: the framed gateway on two caryatides, each placed on a high die, that support an open balcony.
