The city council acquired this derelict 17th-century warehouse in 2000 to house a workshop-cum-museum for Lisbon native Júlio Pomar, one of Portugal's leading artists. But it was only in 2013 that the building - transformed by renowned Oporto architect ílvaro Siza Vieira - was finally unveiled. The new art space comprises an airy central exhibition area and mezzanine, plus an auditorium. As well as showcasing several hundred paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, collages, ceramics and installations donated by Pomar (who continues to work here), it also hosts exhibitions of fellow artists' works.
