Miranda do Douro, Paço Episcopal planta, vista aerea

Paço Episcopal. Os primeiros bispos de Miranda tiveram de habitar no Castelo. Só em 1601 se inicia a construção do Paço Episcopal e do Seminário. Quando ficou pronto, mais de um século depois, a sua opulência não era inferior à da Sé, cujo estilo, renascentista, imitou. O Paço desenvolvia-se em torno de um pátio central, cingido por um claustro em arcaria rebaixada, sobre colunas monolíticas. E, embora muito abalado por sucessivos incendios, durante os séculos XVII e XVIII, foi a transferência defininitiva da sede da Diocese para Bragança, em 1780, que o fez entrar em ruina acelerada. A sombra da sua monumentalidade projecta-se ainda hoje no claustro e no pórtico do Seminário. Mas, não obstante o estado de ruína, o seu poder simbólico mantem-se porque os bispos continuaram sempre a gravar o seu nome no respectivo memorial, à entrada do pórtico renascentista do primeiro Paço Episcopal da Diocese.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
