The paintings of Vasco Fernandes (Grão Vasco, as they call him in Portugal) and the flemish tapestries are for me the highlights of a small but impressive collection. I think a little bit of thought could be put into the presentation of the exhibits, though,...More

This museum is at the center of a quite interesting old community. Our guide brought to life the nuances of the historical artifacts, which was enlightening. The whole area was sort of a museum, with narrow, winding streets and shops, and a cathedral at the...More

This is a small museum housed in what was originally the Bishop's palace. There is a good collection of mainly religious art and other artefacts and a small gift shop in the entrance. Worth a visit if you have time and are into religious art.

I am not a great fan of museums but our coach was not due to leave for over an hour so we went in and I am very glad we did. There really is quite a lot to see and the time passed very quickly.

We visited the museum as part of a tour of Lamego and knew nothing about it. We were very pleasantly surprised. The high-lights were a set of five religious paintings in vibrant colors for an alter and baroque alters removed from religious buildings. There were...More
