This is worth a visit as it helps you understand the history of how new world was apportioned, with before and after - which even my teenage kids found interesting!

Although there are a few old pieces, it isn't so much a museum as a centre explaining the background to the treaty (the state of geographical knowledge at the time, ships' capabilities…), with models of Columbus's ships, contemporary books on navigation, navigational instruments, copies of maps of the western ocean, and explanations of Spanish and Portuguese interpretations of and modifications...

The Treaty House features the story of how the Spanish and Portuguese monarchies, with a little help from the Pope, met to divide up the western world by drawing lines on a map, the purpose being to avoid disputes over newly discovered territories; very interesting for those who have a taste for history.

A place with a unique importance in the history of the world. It was here that the kings of Spain and Portugal divided in half the unknown world ... It has an area quite informative The site could be a little more snug
