Domus Municipalis / Antigos Paços Municipais

A National Monument since 1910, this peculiarly shaped building is the only example of Romanesque civil architecture in the entire Iberian Peninsula, which has a pentagonal shape. Located in the Cidadela area, it was built in the 13th century and, although it is not known exactly what motivated its creation, it is known that it served as a cistern and meeting point for the “good men”, who were responsible for the analysis of matters of interest and justice.
