The restaurant “A Companhia” and the garden terrace are part of the museum and benefit from the stunning landscape overlooking the Douro River. In the Wine Bar you can taste a delicious Port.

Museu do Côa

museu_coaOver thousands of years, the schist rocks along the Côa valley have been converted into art canvases, being used for engravings that are the legacy of our ancestors’ creative instinct. These magnificent open-air panels, that bury the old myth of rock art only existing in caves, can be observed in the museum’s exhibition, through original pieces of movable art, replicas of “rock panels” and interactive zones that use modern digital technology. The art can also be viewed in loco on organized visits to the valley with specialized guides.

Torga Museum

torga_museumTorga Museum is a place of art, culture and literature, with the purpose of reminding and preserving the work of one of the greatest Portuguese writers of the 20th century, but also attesting his profound connection with the Douro Valley and Trás-os-Montes, that spread the identity of the region abroad.
The signature of the famous architect Souto Moura adds interest to the visit, to admire the smooth outlines of this contemporary building, featured by perfect choices of materials.

Museu de Lamego

A wide collection with an exceptional heritage value is here gathered, particularly the “national treasures”. Historic paintings, tapestries, frescoes in the chapel’s ceiling, are just a few examples of the many pieces of art that carry an identity that transcends the Portuguese boundaries.
