Description

It was here that the Portuguese Republic was proclaimed on 5 October 1910, an event that will always be part of the history of this building. The original building, erected at the time of the post-earthquake reconstruction under Pombal, was totally destroyed in a fire in 1863. The current structure was built in the late 19th century, with contributions by diverse Portuguese artists. Another fire, in 1996, destroyed the upper floors, which have been restored in accordance with the original designs. For that restoration project a number of contemporary architects and artists were asked to participate, adding to the building’s acknowledged architectural and artistic value. The visit takes in the archive room, the main staircase and the belle étage with its allegorical representations of the city.
