County Courthouse, Faro

County Courthouse, Faro

This is the Tribunal Judicial da Comarca de Faro – Secção Central, or the County Courthouse of Faro, Central Section. It is located at Avenida 5 de Outubro 10, in Faro, the capital of the Algarve region at the south of Portugal. The sculptures show a sequence from divine justice, with Adam and Eve expelled from the Garden of Eden, then a King dispensing justice from his court, to modern law with a claimant and a respondent in front of the symbol of justice.
