Sortelha

The house of the Governor of Sortelha municipality was built in the 15th or 16th century and occupied later. It is quadrangular and has two storeys. The main façade has a cornice and straight lintels with no frame, demonstrating classicist influences. There is one framed oriel window with side brackets. The storeys were used for different purposes; the lower one for stores, with a kitchen and a fireplace and a paved floor and a built-in cupboard and a niche topped by a cross. There is a well in the yard.
