Museu da Quinta de Santiago

Built by João Santiago de Carvalho e Sousa at the end of the 19th century, according to a plan by the Italian architect Nicola Bigaglia. In 1968, the Town Hall of Matosinhos acquired the building and the surrounding garden and adapted the space into what became the Museu da Quinta de Santiago/Centro de Arte de Matosinhos (Quinta de Santiago Museum/Matosinhos Art Centre) that was inaugurated in 1996. The building has two exhibitions floors and the garden welcomes several events and open air sculpture exhibitions.
