Pergola (Pérgula)

The word derives from the Latin “pergula”, which had the same meaning. These types of verandas are characterized as forming galleries covered with spaced beams, supported by pillars and garnished with climbing plants. They are intended for short walks in the shade.

Deriva do latim “pergula” onde possuía idêntico significado. As varandas deste tipo apresentam-se como galerias cobertas de travessas espaçadas suportadas por pilares e guarnecidas de trepadeiras. Destinam-se a curtos passeios à sombra.
