Pelourinho de Ponte de Lima (Pillory)

Ponte de Lima
Description
Monument of Public Interest.
The former pillory is from 16th century and was erected on the strand, in front of the “Torre de S. Paulo”.
In the early 19th century, the coat of arms of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and Algarve were added.
Compulsively demolished in the end of the liberal struggles, it was rebuilt during the Estado Novo (period of 1933 - 1974) in front of the Town Hall, using some fragments from the original monument.
