Antigos Paços do Concelho - Viana do Castelo


The construction of the former town hall spread over the reigns of D. Manuel I (who began the work) and D. João III.

The whole building is made of austere granite and the ground floor forms a porchway of three pointed arches, corresponding on the first floor to three balcony windows.

Above the middle window, the royal coat of arms has been carved, together with the armillary sphere and a caravel, the symbol of Viana, which owed most of its prosperity to the sea.
