Cruz de Portugal (Cross of Portugal)


Cruz de Portugal (Cross of Portugal)


A cross dating from the late 15th or early 16th century, conceived in the florid Gothic style. Some researchers have identified Manueline elements on it, an idea that is reinforced by the theory that this cross could have been given to the city of Silves by King Manuel at the time of his visit in 1499.

On one side of the cross there is a Pietá, on the other a crucifix.
