Paço de Giela is one of the most interesting medieval examples of a noble house in a rural environment, in Portugal. Some historians say construction started prior to the Portuguese nationality, although the iconic tower was only built in the fifteenth century.
The goal of the Arcos de Valdevez city hall was to requalify the monument to allow new cultural initiatives and increase tourism. EDIGMA worked closely with architecture and archaeology teams, to design experiences that could help visitors learn more about the monument.
The reconstructed monument features a permanent exhibition, dedicated to the medieval history of the city of Arcos de Valdevez. The reception building includes a new auditorium to support visitor activities, events and conferences.
