Review of Palacio da Galeria

Attraction details
Reviewed 3 May 2016

After visiting the Islamic Museum, we expecting an interesting local museum telling us the other parts of the Tavira story through the ages. Perhaps we missed it, but the top floors of the building were taken up with some rather dull, uninspired art installations, and there was an exhibition about Mediterranean food, ok but nothing new to learn. Couldn't find anything at all about Tavira, if it was there we must have missed it.

The old part of Tavira and the area surrounding the castle and Church are impressive enough and this palace is absolutely outstanding and worth the visit outside with very good and interesting exhibitions

See inside this beautiful building for a slice of Portugese history. Beautifully laid out. The exhibitions are in Portugese and English. A simple museum and great value for three euros

This museum is definitely worth a visit, it gives you an overview of the food,culture,history and religion of the area of Tavira over the centuries with lovely displays, movies, photographs and exhibits.

Although called a palace there is little remaining in the museum in the way of art or furnishings that evokes Palace life. Built in the 16 th century the architecture is simple, not ornate. A part of the palace is the Tavira City museum which has interesting exhibitions of how regional foods are processed and a kitchen with a focus on a Mediterranean diet. We found this part of the museum more interesting than the palace.
