The Gothic style Count’s Palace (port. Paço dos Condes) in Barcelos was built in the first half of the 15th century by Alfonso I. During this period, it was the most important building in the region.
Today, only parts of the original complex have been preserved. The tower is still visible, which was, however, significantly damaged during the earthquake of 1755. Nevertheless, the population of Barcelos protested against the final teardown. Since the early 20th century, the count’s palace is now a national monument. Today, the archaeological museum of Barcelos is behind these historic walls.
