Governadores Castle

Governadores Castle
Built in the 17th century, this building is the only surviving element of the complex of the Seven Stations of the Holy Way that were distributed throughout the city in the 18th century.

On the main façade, above each of the two main doorways, we can see the coat of arms of the Kingdom of the Algarve and in between them the seal of the Count of Avintes. A grand baroque fronton crowns the station (oratory), sealed by two large wooden doors.
