Museu dos Fósforos de Aquiles da Mota Lima

Museu que apresenta uma coleção com mais de 50 mil caixas de fósforos de todo o mundo, incluindo as primeiras fabricadas em Portugal. É agora a maior coleção do género em toda a Europa. Tudo começou quando Aquiles Mota Lima trocou uma caixa de fósforos com uma senhora americana num paquete que ia a caminho de Inglaterra.
