Bandstand

Noteworthy Building -

 

At the Municipal Council Session of 13th July 1893, it was deliberated “to order before the country’s most accredited factories, drawings for an iron bandstand suitable to install in D. Francisco Gomes Square. 

Construction must have begun the following year, after the letter received from Companhia Aliança do Porto, the most probable project authors.

By building this public equipment for music presentations the Town’s Municipal Council contributed to the importance of that public space.
