Photographer's Note

The City Hall building, projected by Arquitect Correia da Silva, starts construction in 1920. However, after several interruptions and changes to the initial project, introduced by Arquitect Carlos Ramos, the construction is resumed only in 1947, and concluded 8 years later. Finally, in 1957, council services are placed in the building.

The Municipal Council building has six floors, a basement and two internal patios. In order to reach the central tower's top, 70 meters high and with a built-in clock, it is necessary to climb 180 steps.

Basically built from marble and granite, the building's interior has a few nobly decorated rooms where the most solemn ceremonies take place, along with Municipal Assemblies and Executive Meetings.
