The Museum of Biscaínhos is housed within a stunning 17th-century residential palace, originally built by a noble family. This remarkable structure is a prime example of civil Baroque architecture, offering a glimpse into the lifestyles of the Baroque-era upper class. The various buildings have been preserved in their original state, and inside, visitors can enjoy a collection of 17th and 18th-century artwork. The majority of the items on display were donated by private collectors and include Baroque furniture, ceramics, Chinese porcelain, European glassware, silverware, textiles, as well as Portuguese and European paintings. Additionally, the gardens, which were designed in the 18th-century French style, are some of the most well-preserved and comprehensive examples of the Baroque period.
