As a photographer myself I always make a point of visiting photographic exhibitions when I come across them on my travels. This one was not bad, although large swathes of it seemed to be closed, with very little information in English. The building itself is almost as attractive as the exhibits, and from what I understand used to be a jail.

Fantastic space in a converted old jail is a unique venue for the superbly presented exhibits on the lower floors. The upper floors feature a plethora of cameras through the ages, along with fine views over the city.

I would recommend visiting the center/museum. It used to be a jail and now it’s more like a photography museum! And it’s for free! Just in the city center!

Honestly, it was a bit underwhelming. We knew the centre was inside of a prison so we expected it to be more..."prisoney" but the truth is that there are very few traces of that. Still, I learnt quite a bit about prisoners such as Camilo Castelo Branco. Also, I'm a photography fanatic. I loved the exhibitions of cameras and the descriptions near them were very simple and clear. However, I was disappointed with the photos. They were good, but not exciting or inspiring. The selection was not the best in my opinion So generally speaking, it wasnt a terrible experience but I dont think I'd go back so soon
