Image of Quartel dos Dragões de Évora
The Évora New Castle, founded by D. Manuel I, was built between 1518 and 1528 under the responsibility of the architect Diogo de Arruda. It was transformed, from 1736, into a sober and important military building, to receive the Regiment of Dragons of Évora. It constitutes one of the most important testimonies of the baroque profane of the city.
The lower bodies of the two parallelepiped towers on the south side of the manueline tract remain, with their sloping shoes and the side elevations that defended the curtains between four towers of the primitive construction.
