Museu Condes de Castro Guimaraes

3 reviews of Museu Condes de Castro Guimaraes

Beautiful palace

This beautiful palace, built in 1890, is notable for its medieval-inspired tower. Its owners, the Count and Countess of Castro, donated it to the city of Cascais. Since 1931 it has housed the municipal museum, which features Portuguese gold and pottery from the XVIII and XIX centuries, Portuguese and Indo-Portuguese furniture, Chinese vases from the XVIII century, a library and an interesting organ cabinet from 1753. It's in a strategic position, only separated from the sea by a road, and it has a small private beach, accessed underground by the highway. Leaving the palace, there is the chapel of San Sebastian and a large city park with a mini zoo.
