It's difficult to imagine that exctly in the middle of Lisbon someone may find this explendid house of a phamous doctor that travelled arround the globe and collected a unique collection of painting and crafterie. Excellent.

It's an example of a collection created by an ophthalmologist, a man of excellent taste who had a particular feeling for the naturalistic style of Portuguese painters from the nineteen and early twentieth centuries. On the other hand, he collected a very interesting group of...More
