“historic building showing local art”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

The old slaughterhouse has been very gently restored and now houses an exhibition space for local artists. With a very beautiful fountain int he courtyeard area, and breathtaking views over the aldarve from the window, this is a 'must visit'.

“Interesting Architecture”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

The Carnicerias Reales is the building that was the abattoir and market in the 16th century. It was designed by Francisco del Castillo. The main front has a Mannerist architecture influenced by Italian design, with columns that have a triangular pediment. There is a beautiful patio with half-rounded arches resting on stone pillars. There is an impressive spiral staircase made of stone that goes down to the basement, where the abattoir was located.
