I liked especially the animal sculptures but also the others show a very good know-how of the artist. It is a very nice small museum, worth a visit on the way up to the palazzos.

We chose to explore this museum simply because the name intrigued us, having spotted the tourist signage while walking towards the castle. SO glad we decided to stop - as this is a wonderful mini-gallery dedicated to a hugely talented father & son creative family; whose work encompasses sketching, illustration, painting and sculpture in several media. The work is annotated... More

This is a jam-packed gallery of historic sculptural significance (for Portugal) we enjoyed the variety of mediums- bronze, stone, ink on paper, oils, etc for a well-rounded view of these artists.

First went there in 1985!! What an amazing place, but what made it really special was the presence of Anjos Teixeira himself! What a remarkable person… he has died since then and I have gone back time after time, after time and can't get tired of looking to what his amazing hands have created! You will like it too…allow yourself... More

Two artists' work (father and son) are featured here. The sculpture is amazing, yet very little known outside Portugal. It deserves more recognition, these men were extremely talented.

A man in the street recommended we visit this little museum dedicated to father and son sculptors. Many works are on display in an old mill. Worth a free visit to experience the skill these men had.
