Museu-Biblioteca Condes de Castro de Guimarães

The Museum-Library that got its donor's name opened in 1930. During the adaptation to museum works they have been careful to keep the atmosphere of a house with its inhabitants and the interior architecture and decor motives have been stressed. Here, you will appreciate works of great artistic and documental value, including art works that picture Cascais, by Portuguese and foreign authors, Indian-Portuguese tableware and an excellent archaeology room. Also a special note to the library, with about 2500 rare volumes, where the most valuable is an illustrated manuscript of the Cronicals of the King Dom Afonso Henriques, of 1505, with a coloured illustrian of Lisbon in the 16th century. In the garden, a special not to the tiles and to a mini-zoo.
