José Luciano de Castro Palace
José Luciano de Castro Palace now houses a museum, part of the Santa Casa da Misericordia of Anadia. The mansion was built in 1860 by Alexandre Ferreira (1818-1891) and is currently a bit run down, but still shows part of the beauty of what it was in antiquity, the highlight are the various blue tiles on the back - the most spectacular of the building.
