Museu de Grão Vasco

This museum, dating from 1916, began to function on the premises of the Cathedral, and only in 1938 it moved to the Paço dos Três Escalões. Of the many pieces on display, we highlight paintings by Grão Vasco, from the Cathedral, the Episcopal Palace of Fontelo and churches and convents in the Beira region, as well as paintings by different contemporary artists. Furniture, sculptures, jewellery, Portuguese faience, textiles, oriental and archeology porcelain are also on display.
