The paper presents fragments of original archival documentation, which are used to identify the historical outline of the colonnade building and the peristyle pavilion located on Partisan Hill in an old part of Wroclaw. Traces of these buildings date back to the Middle Ages. The state of preservation of these objects was presented on the basis of conducted assessments, drilling cores, and non-destructive and semi-non-destructive tests. Much attention was devoted to the brick walls, brick and reinforced concrete ceilings in flat roofs, as well as to the elements of architectural detail. The presented results include tests of the moisture content and salinity of walls, tests of the compressive strength of concrete and distribution of reinforcement in ceilings. They constitute the first stage of activities that aim to restore the buildings to their former glory.
