"The Municipal Museum" Museu Condes de Castro Guimaraes - Museum Tip by salinhopt

  Cascais - Municipal Museum
by salinhopt

Situated in one of the most sought after areas of the town where the sea appears to be trying to reach the Gandarinha Park, is the Counts of Castro Guimarães Palace, overlooking the Santa Marta Cave. The Palace was donated to the local authority in 1924, when it became a Museum. It is worth a prolonged visit, not only for its unusual architecture, but also for its wealth of art and archaeology. You can appreciate works of art by national and international artists, some of them depicting Cascais and rich Indo-Portuguese furniture.
