Museums and Palaces

Built to serve as a residence in the mediaeval period, this manor house was bought and adapted to serve as the municipal cultural centre in 1984, after having belonged to the Counts of Resende who gave their name to the building.

Amongst its more notable features are the Jardim das Japoneiras (the Camellia Garden), with some trees that are over a hundred years old, and the Jardim Eça de Queiroz, a garden planted in honour of the famous 19th-century Portuguese writer, who fell in love with Emília de Castro Pamplona, the daughter of the Counts of Resende, at this house.

The house contains a Historical Documentation Centre, with documents dating from the Middle Ages, a museum section, an archaeological laboratory and a temporary exhibition area.
