ABOUT

Portuguese Centre of Photography

It is the museum's mission to champion Portuguese photography. It contains a varied programme of temporary and permanent exhibits. Portugal's most reputed photographers have their works displayed here in addition to those international photographers who have influenced Portuguese photography. The building is a former prison and has been fully restored, with the old cells, workshops and courtyards now transformed into exhibition galleries for the photographs on display. Occupying the third floor is an interesting collection of old cameras, including some intriguing spy cameras.
