If you are in the vicinity, then absolutely stop by for a stroll in the gardens to see the peacocks. They are beautiful, and a nice stroll in the garden is quite peaceful. You can, however, skip the museum. Yes, there are images, paintings, and...More

Our favourite museum in this wonderful town bears a whiff of amore as do many royal edifices built for this girlfriend or someone of greater significance. It's a period charmer that tracks the development of this wonderful region via tiles, lithographs, manuscripts, paintings and models....More

The exhibition in a fine old city house takes you from the Palaeolithic to the declaration of the Republic. Presentation is a touch old-fashioned only in Portuguese, but entry is free. My favourites were the model of pre-earthquake Lisbon and the engravings of the damage...More

For me the museum is not the most interessing part (historical museum of the story pf the city), i prefere the gardens, where you can find peacocks and another little garden with statues from bordalo pinheiro that is amazing
