Not much to visit, but it's a very nice piece of architecture. It used to mark the autonomy of the city, meaning it could apply the capital punishment.

Whilst wandering around Brasov we stumbled across this gate in a park and it is just lovely with such impressive spires. We sat opposite it and stared for ages - would recommend walking by!

Gate was built by the Tailors Guild in 1559 for defense instead of an old gate destroyed by the flood in 1526. You must visit and discover full story ;) Correct name is Catherine's Gate

Very Disneyish we were . by and stopped to take a few photo's. Weather was fine and sunny but I do not think I would want to visit here on a wet day not really much to see.

Another of the well kept medieval sites in the old city - by the way, wrong spelling for the name - it should be Ecaterina Gate
