City Hall, Sintra
Considered a fine example of Neo-Manueline architecture (and rightly so), Sintra’s Town Hall is also located on the main road between the train station and the Sintra National Palace. Built between 1906 and 1909 on the site of the demolished Chapel of S. Sebastião, its main features are the wonderful Neo-Manueline windows; a clock tower with battlements; and a panel of ceramic tiles portraying the Cross of Christ and the Portuguese coat of arms - at the top of which, is an armillary sphere. The building is still the seat of Sintra's civic duties.
Sintra’s Town Hall is situated between the old quarter and Estefania and was built between 1906 and 1909 on the lot of the church of St Sebastian. The tower of the building really stands out with its glazed tiles which represent the Portuguese coat of arms and the Christian Cross. On the top is a armillary sphere. The style of architecture is Manueline which was quite unique to Portugal at the time
After getting off the train, we began our walk toward the National Palace and this was one of the first buildings of interest that we saw. I wasn't sure at the time, but I now know for sure that it is the impressive City Hall of Sintra (this I had verified by VTer micas_pt, also known as Alexandra. Isn't VT great!?).
The town hall in Sintra lies to the South East and is a beautiful clean looking building. It is Neo-Gothic in its’ style.
This beautiful building was built in 1906 on the place where there was the Chapel of S. Sebastião, demolished in the first years of the 20th century. The building functions as the Town Hall
