There is a good number of paintings from Amadeo de Souza cardoso and a good example of contemporary portuguese art. The building is also very interesting. Loved the visit
We stopped by the museum to see a special exhibit by a local artist (Amedeo de Sooza-Cardosa). It was very special and well worth the visit. The other art in the museum was great as well.
Rooted in the ancient monastery, it is beautifully designed to present visitors with a wide range of artworks. Both exhibits we saw were well-detailed (audio-guide available) and all the rooms were wide and well lit. Will return, for sure, when new exhibits pop up!
Interesting but not too special to make a detour for. Nice art work that offer some information about the Portuguese artist. Costs only 1€/person, situated in an old monastery. If you come with a car, be careful, because the roads are very narrow and parking spaces are scarce.
The museum is only a stones-throw from the river, in the former convent, so it is easy to find. Born in Amarante, Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso was an artist in the early 20th century who was particularly known for his cubist paintings. He spent time living and painting in Paris,…
