The Museum of Lamego is installed in the ancient Episcopal Palace, whose reconstruction is due to D. Manuel de Vasconcelos Pereira, the Bishop of Lamego between 1773 and 1786. Founded in 1917, after de 1910 Revolution (Republic), its collection, which its major characteristic is the eclectism, is continuously enriched by new donations. At present and in permanent exhibition, it has sections of painting, tapestry and paraments, sculpture, gold-craftmanship, ceramics, ornamental tiles, arheology, chapels, vehicles and furniture. Among the colection there are 18 pieces classified as National Threasures. Flamish tapestries and Vasco Fernandes's paintings, both from 16th century, assume the role of the museum's ex-libris.

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.

This museum houses a very good collection of art rescued from nearby churches, as well as some important tapestries and some interesting tiled panels. It has a small gift shop inside the entrance.

People often say that small towns have nothing of interest. WRONG. The town of Lamego has everything including a fabulous museum. It's like an Aladdin's Cave. Turn a corner and there's something different. This is a MUST visit !!
