Abstract: The paper deals with post-earthquake damage assessment and global earthquake behaviour of historical masonry structures.
The study refers to a certain type of 2-4 storied masonry buildings placed in seismic areas. The research is focused on a significant case, the Mikó Castle of Olteni (Transylvania), incorporated in a mediaeval ensemble. This little castle comprises important empire style wall paintings.
The paper presents investigations on the earthquake-produced damages of the building.
Taking into account the structural conception and examining the grade of damage of different walls, some conclusions concerning the earthquake behaviour of the structure and different structural elements are drown. These findings represent the base for the retrofitting proposal.
