Here we find a beautiful little palace who was built in 1892 and it's also a Library dos Condes de Castro, which exhibits antic Portuguese furnitures and Indo-Portuguese and many 17 th century ceramics; a nice little museum to visit.

We spent about an hour going through this great house with amazing antiques inside. But the views from the windows gave the things inside a run for their money! Friends went to the other great house opposite (Santa Marta), but said this was much nicer.

Having walked through the nearby park and seen peacocks and chickens we then came across this museum. It was a very interesting visit with a variety of artefacts in differing settings. Very worth a visit.

Hello It is free for children and seniors (over 60). The fee for others is around 3 euros I think. Lovely place to wander around: enjoy.
