The Brukenthal School borders one side, while between the school and the church stands a statue of Georg Teutsch, Archbishop of the Evangelical Church of Transylvania for much of the 1860s and 70s.
Behind the church runs the Pasajul Scarilor, probably the most photographed sight in Sibiu, built in the 18th century to link the Upper Town with the Lower. Take a look too at the Turnul Scarii (Tower of Steps), a far steeper route down to the lower town. The tower (and the portion of wall which runs alongside) is the only surviving part of Sibiu’s original 13th century fortifications. At the bottom, built into the tower's base, the Butoiul de Aur is the city's oldest hostelry.
