Worth a visit. I wasn't familiar with this Portuguese artist who gets 6-figure prices out of London at Marlborough Gallery. They have a little cafe that is restful and nice. You can park around the museum, it is set in a residential neighborhood and is a bit of a walk (not too bad) from downtown Cascais on the western part... More

The surf movie festival was awesome, Paula Rêgo's paintings and overall art is beautiful even if related to an ideology

Really enjoyed our visit, we had never heard of Paula Rego but found her work interesting and bizarre, there was also a temporary event which was less to our taste but thought provoking and sometimes hilarious, at only 3 euros per adult and 1,5 euro for kids its worth a look.

We walked up to the gallery which is interesting in design and set in a nice garden. Paula Rego is not an artist we were familiar with, and suffice to say, we won't be exploring it any further!

We decided to visit this small art Gallery, named after Paula Rego, born in the town of Cascais, Portugal, but has lived in the UK a long time and has become a Dame of the British Empire. I have long admired her work, which I know is not to everyone's taste. Her paintings (usually in pastels) and often taken from... More

Not my cup of tea. Bizarre paintings that just did not appeal to me. Some may enjoy her work but it was not for me.

We did not know the artist Paula Rego before we visited the gallery, but we were knocked out by her powerful work. It was fascinating to discover the ideas behind her art. The gallery was well set out and the amount of work very manageable.

If you want to get out of Portugal's summer sun this is as good a place as any. Even the outside of the gallery scores highly for its dramatic architecture. Inside was an exhibition of Manuel Amado's paintings. They have an "ominous simplicity", says curator and accomplished artists Paula Rego. Worth going to see for yourself. Senior citizens get in...

Terrific exhibitions there - The Portugese-British painter Paula Rego and their paintings "Old meets New" were a real discovery!

The place and the work of Paula Rego are amazing. Definitely a "must go" place. Interesting architecture project with great paintings of Paula inside. The place also has temporary exhibitions.
