Domus Municipalis / Antigos Paços Municipais

A monument probably built during the 15th century, with two distinct bodies. According to documents of that time, the objective of this construction was utilitarian and it was named "cistern" or "water room". It has a cistern to keep the rain waters and the streams and the extra-dorse that covers it forms the pavement of the hall. This upper part, the hall with windows, may have bem built to be used as the Town Hall.
