De Almada Negreiros is a locally well known painter who could be compared to Otto Dix and sometimes to Tamara De Lempika as far as style is concerned. Beautiful setup and interesting architecture. An exhibition of top value.

Lovely area in the centre of the town. Lots of nice historic looking cobbled streets with great little shops, cafes, bars, restaurants. Lovely friendly atmosphere and lots of places to sit and enjoy the views.

A potted history of Portugal's past, avoiding much of their colonial period, but dwelling on the health giving properties of the Mediterranean diet. It kept us out of the rain.

The museum was presenting an exhibition of contemporary art, which was a nice surprise, as we were expecting to find some ancient archaeological treasures. It was very interesting and well presented.

A good museum which explains the history of the Algarve for local people, presentations are accompanied by English explanation boards. Well worth a visit.

Thought this was the worst museum we ever visited and we have visited a lot!! Mostly about the med diet and a few maps on the wall. Maybe we missed something but honestly you could give this a miss - there's more history on the...More
