Pillory - Santa Marta de Penaguião

Santa Marta de Penaguião
Description

The pillory, very simple, based on a platform with three circular steps, of edge, with the ground almost completely soaked in the soil. The column fits directly on the top step, rising in cylindrical and smooth shaft, surmounted by a small embroidered ring. The capital consists of a pine cone of square base with lightly fond edges, whose top thins itself in a truncated cone of concave faces.
The simplicity of the set does not date it with precision, although it is likely to have been built in the sequence of the Manueline charter, conserving medieval feature.
Public Interest by Decree-Law No. 23,122, of 11-10-1993.v
