  • The museum has a breathtaking collection of tapestries from some of the most famous Portuguese artists. The temporary exhibition was a very good collection of tapestries - shall I say paintings...

  • Very interesting little museum with beautiful tapestries and set in a very well designed building. It’s a triumph of architecture- perfect blending of modernity in older buildings. Watch the little video
  • For most people, tapestry would mean a traditional technology of fabric decoration - but the Museum in Portalegre shows a completely different side of it. Here, the display shows the amazing local development, starting from a serious advance in technology of converting the visual art into fabric - and working in partnership with painters (from contemporary all the way back to Monet) to reproduce, enlarge and enhance it in the tapestry. Here it is raised to the level of complex art. Any visitor will be advised to ask for a tour by their knowledgeable and passionate staff - you will be blown off your feet by what you see and learn.
