Just outside the main entrance to the castle area, at the top of the Main Street. Easily missed, so look out for it!

Not to be missed, just outside the castle, the Pelourinho is a pillory made in white marble, The pedestal is decorated with 4 frogs or hybrid monsters, It is a bit worn but worth a few minutes study.

Tucked away on a road outside the ruins of the castle, the pillory is almost missed. Opriginal Gothic? piece of nastiness from which - it seems - miscreants were suspended in times gone by.

This tower (monument) stands outside the entrance to the castle and was the original pillory tower. At the bottom are four frogs carved into the stonework, although they are so word they are now hardly recognizable.

Right in front of the ménage tower of the castle and the avenue, in the middle of a small square, it is an interesting monument to observe.

How in front of the castle way out. Really pretty. Nice pictures. Lovely street. You can't miss it. There's not much. More to say, it's in the middle of the sidewalk between 2 trees.

Thank JPaschoal
