Heart of the historical district
Chaves City Council is in the heart of the historical district, in Camoes Square, a Loreto Chapel and the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza (today Flaviense Region Museum), and directly opposite the Mother Church . It is a three-story building in which there are multiple windows, built in the fifteenth century. The main entrance is framed by an arch of granite, on which stands the presidential balcony. The top is crowned with a pediment, which is the shield of the city and above it, the clock of the town. In front of the building is the Monument to D. Alfonso I, Duke of Bragança.
