Museums and Palaces

The residence of António de Medeiros e Almeida (1895-1986) was converted into a house-museum by the owner himself in the early 1970s. He established the Medeiros e Almeida Foundation, to which he donated his whole estate, in 1973.

The museum space consists of 25 rooms, including a part where António Medeiros e Almeida himself lived, which retains the original ambience.
The house-museum's collection includes paintings, furniture, tapestry, sacred art, glassware and jewellery, with sets and single items from the 17th century to the present day.

There are three outstanding collections, displayed in their own rooms:
- the collection of around 225 watches, divided chronologically from the 16th century to the present day;
- the collection of Chinese porcelain, from prehistoric terracotta (Han dynasty) up to late 18th-century pieces;
- the collection of silverware, consisting of two pieces by the English silversmith Paul Storr (1792-1838), and 16th and 17th-century Portuguese silver, including around 80 Portuguese silver toothpick holders.
