A building of the 15th century that belonged to the navigator João Velho. Above the lower floor there is a shed that may have bem part of a set of arches that surrounded the "Praça Velha" (Old Square). Of the three arches, two are ogival and one romanic. Its interior went through several changes., of which the worst may have been the ones that took place in 1914 in order to install there the Historic Institute of the Minho.
