One of Portuguese greatest painters, do not miss this when in Viseu; here you can have a glimpse of some fascinating works and also "travel" to an era with paintings depicting old situations and places.

A lovely museum with some wonderful works of art tastefully displayed. There are commentaries in English on the major works which added to our understanding of Grao Vasco's importance.
