// Heritage

Gondomar, as a result of its long history, has a valuable built heritage with solares (manor houses) and casas senhoriais (stately houses) among which stands out the Solar da Bandeirinha (16th century), one of the most important buildings of Civil Architecture of the Municipality.

We recommend you book a tour and take a closer look at the sculpted ceilings of the Salão Nobre (Noble Hall) carved in a 17th century baroque style. We also suggest you visit the Casa Branca de Gramido, built in the 18th century, where it was signed, on June 1847, the Convention that ended the Civil War of “Patuleia”. Today, this building has two functions: Espaço Cultural (Cultural Venue) and Loja Interativa de Turismo (Tourism Interactive Store).

The Estação Ferroviária de Rio Tinto (Rio Tinto Railway Station) is a heritage landmark of azulejaria (glazed tiles). Its murals, date back to 1936, came from the Fábrica Viúva Lamego, depict the everyday life, whether of Rio Tinto or of the region, as well as the legend that gave the parish its name. In terms of contemporary architecture, the Multiusos de Gondomar (Gondomar Multipurpose Pavilion), designed by the renowned architect Siza Vieira, stands out. This landmark in the northern region hosts many big events.
