Pillory

Vila Nova de Cerveira
Description

This is the symbol per excellence of municipal power and independence. Here was made the military recruitment, was fixed the edicts, were being made the public announcements and was managing to justice, with the application of corporal punishment such as flogging and whipping. Death sentences were not executed here, but on the gallows in a visible place already outside to the castle.
We found 4 beauty escutcheons, representing the quinas, and the symbols of Viscount of Cerveira, and the inscription date of 1547, as evidenced by the inscription of the monument. The granite pillory, symbol of the autonomy of the county, retains original features, lacking only golilha - the ring that held the neck or the hands of convicts who have been grubbed up by 1850.
On the top of pillory we see the symbols of Viscount of Cerveira, the national arms and the symbol of the county.
