Museum in Cascais is concentrated to Paula Rego, very famous portugeuse artist. There is usually temporary exhibitions not the permanent one at all, so it is better to cheek opening hours beforehand. First time we went there, the museum was closed between two exhibitions. But...More

On a rainy and stormy day the visit of the Paula Rego's museum was a good idea. The architecture is very special and makes you wonder what you'll see. The artist P.R. said "I paint to give fear a face"(folktales and fairy tales). Before visiting...More

The striking imagery in this collection will stay with you long after your visit. Very much pre-Disney. Important and worth a visit.

This is the second time we visited Cascais to see Paula Rego's work. This time there was a large and fascinating exhibition. Do check on the current exhibition as they change fairly often If it is a good exhibition you can't do better.
