The Art Nouveau Museum has opened its doors in Aveiro, located in Casa Major Pessoa, a true icon of art nouveau.
It is ornamented with many “azulejos” panels of Factory Fábrica da Fonte Nova (1916) displaying regional motifs.
18th century church Igreja do Carmo is situated in the bottom of Rua de D. Francisco Alexandre Lobo.
This is perhaps the best known church in Aveiro because its façade is covered with tile.
If you are a fan of the typical Portuguese tiles “azulejos”, then one of the best places to go is to the city of Ovar! This Arab-origin art dates back to the second half of the 15th century.
Surrounded by some of the most interesting buildings in Viseu, Rossio is the heart of the city. This area, where during the late 18th century the European fashion of public promenade was also adopted, was, since the 15th century, the favourite place for Viseu natives to socialize.
Palace-like Casa de Cimo de Vila or Solar dos Peixotos is the most magnificent house in Viseu for its general lines, but also for being a characteristic sample of civil 18th century Portuguese architecture.
