Loved this little museum! We came across it by accident, and had about 1 hour to quickly look around. Fascinating to anyone interested in medicine and medical history. Pretty hidden!

The cafe is serving outside and you have a fantastic view of the sea. The interior is held in cosy atmosphere and the food and wine was great

Beautifully designed and laid out but very little information in anything other than Portugese. The old pharmacies were beautiful.
