Please support this place and help keep it open for visitors. By request, entrance includes a visit to the neighbouring chapel. The friendly assistant comes from Fuseta to keep the museum going. Therefore opening times can be quite erratic. Her English is not brilliant, but...More

This little museum tucked in the middle of Moncarapacho is a must see. The curator knows every little detail about the displays and is very patient in responding to any questions. Take time to visit the Church next to the museum which falls under the...More
