DOOR / ARCH OF CONCEPTION

Door to the historic center of Alcantara, to what remains of the city walls. Had defense functions and to control the entrance of the village.

It owes its name to what it was a chapel of Nossa Senhora da Conceição. Granite and slate masonry with lime repealed, the door opens to a deep semicircular arch in three long straight sections, covered with domes. The top is actually a room that highlights the niche, now a baroque window. Under it is the coat of Philip III, surrounded by the Golden Fleece, with the arms of Spain and Portugal are located.
