Casa do Infante

Built in the XIV century, this is a building with various floors and an arcade structure. It has several medieval and Manueline vestiges. The “façade” was enriched with a central single flight stairs. This embellishment, which continues in the large symmetrical openings at the stairs’ centre, seems to be justified by the desire to ennoble the place where the administrative functions were performed.
