Photographer's Note

The Piata Mica is very unusual in that it's a semi-circle with a ramp leading down and away to the lower town, beneath the Liar's Bridge on one side. On the other, a covered passageway to the Piata Mare is the primary way of exiting the opposite side.

When we were there, it was a bit sad to see that this beautiful piata was under construction. Most of the paving stones were taken away and piled, a trench was dug down the length of the ramp and construction vehicles were parked all over.

At first I tried to work around this, as I'd been looking forward to seeing and photgraphing Sibiu, taking photos over the dirt and the piles, leaving things cut off at the bottom. But construction is a sign of improvement for people who pass through everyday and I'm sure this lady was looking forward to the trenches and piles going away even more than I was.
