10 Art Museums in Northern Portugal That You Shouldn't Miss

May 22, 2022 Alida England

Brimming with both history and natural wonder, Northern Portugal is home to Porto, the city that gave the country its name, as well as the important ancient town of Braga. Also here is Peneda-Gerês, Portugal’s only national park, a gorgeous wilderness area of mountains, gorges, water features and wildlife. Many picturesque villages and manor houses dot the countryside. Two areas are UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Alto Douro Wine Region, and the Paleolithic rock art in the Côa Valley.

Alianca Underground Museum

The Alianca Underground Museum is an exhibition space, displayed along the traditional wine cellars of Alianca Vinhos de Portugal. Including eight private collections, the public has access to diverse artefacts from the fields of archeology, ethnography, mineralogy, paleontology as well as ceramic tiles and tins covering millions of years of history. Being part of the great universe of the Berardo Collection, these collections are the result of the constant effort of Jose Berardo in collecting and caring for objects of scientific, artistic, historical and sentimental importance.
