Municipal House of Póvoa - City Hall

2 reviews of Municipal House of Póvoa - City Hall


City Hall of Póvoa

City Hall (or Municipal Chamber) of Póvoa is the most beautiful and impressive building in Plaza de Almada, and is a Property of Public Interest. It was built in the eighteenth century, but renovated in early twentieth century. Its facade is very striking, from the gallery of seven arches on the ground floor (designed by French engineer Reinaldo Oudinot) to the tiles that decorate the top floor of its facade. These, along with the tower, were later additions in 1908 by the anthropologist Rocha Peixoto and the Belgian painter Joseph Bialman.
