FERNANDO DE CASTRO HOUSE MUSEUM
Guided tour by Porto Secret Spots
In Porto, in the middle of Rua Costa Cabral, 800 meters from the Marquês square, a inconspicuous house guards the unusual result of 30 years of life of a Porto resident.
In the first half of the 20th century, Fernando de Castro put together a vast collection of paintings, sculptures, books and objects, as well as immense gilded carvings with which he created surprising environments. The result is a universe of its own where the creativity of the collector (who was also a caricaturist and poet) makes us feel at times in the palace of Versailles, at times in the Church of S. Francisco, at times only in the studio of an artist.
At Fernando de Castro House Museum, nothing was left to chance, and the density of the decoration is absolutely breathtaking.
Don't miss this unique experience!
