Edifício da Misericórdia de Viana do Castelo

The construction of this building started in 1520 and lasted until the end of the century. The project is due to John Lee, the younger. Is one of the most interesting works of civil architecture of the time. The façade, facing the square, is formed by two balconies alpendradas with columns that are based on carved lavishly arched colonnades of arches of volta redonda. The encimar facade is a triangular pediment. On the West side, the granite portal, with various sculptures.
