Although modern art aficionados, we only intended to pop in for a quick visit whilst sightseeing in this lovely small town. We ended up staying half the afternoon - the art was really that good at the Museu Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso. A few days later...More

Rooted in the ancient monastery, it is beautifully designed to present visitors with a wide range of artworks. Both exhibits we saw were well-detailed (audio-guide available) and all the rooms were wide and well lit. Will return, for sure, when new exhibits pop up!

Interesting but not too special to make a detour for. Nice art work that offer some information about the Portuguese artist. Costs only 1€/person, situated in an old monastery. If you come with a car, be careful, because the roads are very narrow and parking...More

The museum is only a stones-throw from the river, in the former convent, so it is easy to find. Born in Amarante, Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso was an artist in the early 20th century who was particularly known for his cubist paintings. He spent time living...More

Well layed out museum, clean and modern, plenty of staff to assist you if you have questions regarding some artwork. In English as well as Portuguese. And only €1 entry for adults.

It's really interesting to visit the art of another country. The most exciting find was the photography of Eduardo da Costa Teixeira Pinto. I wish his work was more accessible. It's a wonderful building and cool relief on a hot day.

This is an excellent example of what can be achieved in a provincial town where an old Dominican convent has been well converted to an art gallery. This gallery exhibits work by artists who were born in the area as well as other temporary exhibitions....More

An amazing modern art gallery with some historical exhibits as well. Outshone many larger galleries that we have visited and entry for one euro is a steal. The exhibition of Mario Vitoria's artworks was exceptional.

This is a fabulous modern art museum, in a lovely setting. 1 euro entry fee, into a wonderful courtyard setting. The temporary exhibition was very modern, and the perminant one, showing exhibition of cubist art and modern art upti 2013. Definitely worth a visit

This is a great little visit in Amarante. We were lucky to have a friend book us a private tour with Theresa (sp?). She was wonderful and pointed out pieces in the collection with particularly important stories/histories.

Nice museum in older part of the village with contemporary art. Especially the first floor shows you a large range of works in different styles.
