Elvas, Santa Clara square, pillory
Elvas, Portugal

Pyramidal pine pillory, with five steps octagonal, from where the torso shaft evolves with bands ornamented by spheres, cut in half by a large ring, with a small capital, from where the fastening irons evolve. Finishing in pyramidal pinnacle. Very elaborate pillory, with the shaft, ring, capital and finish decorated by spherical elements. Only a detailed examination will make it possible to differentiate the original Manueline elements from the neo-Manueline additions made in the 20th century.

More About Elvas, Portugal

The site, extensively fortified from the 17th to 19th centuries, represents the largest bulwarked dry-ditch system in the world. Within its walls, the town contains barracks and other military buildings as well as churches and monasteries. While Elvas contains remains dating back to the 10th century ad, its fortification began when Portugal regained independence in 1640. The fortifications designed by Dutch Jesuit padre Cosmander represent the best surviving example of the Dutch school of fortifications anywhere. The site also contains the Amoreira aqueduct, built to enable the stronghold to withstand lengthy sieges.UNESCO
