 Museum Municipal Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso


Surprising museum for modern and contemporary art. It is named after Amarante's most famous artist, painter Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso (1887-1918).

Besides works by his hand, it has a fine collection of other modern Portuguese artists and organizes international temporary exhibitions and events.

The museum is located in a part of the old Dominican monastery, São Gonçalo, which makes for an exciting combination of historical and contemporary art.
