The foundation that late businessman António Medeiros e Almeida created in 1973 has 26 rooms across two floors showing 2,000 pieces (out of total holdings of 9,000 pieces), the legacy of years of hoarding. They include Chinese porcelain, clocks, paintings, furniture, gold and jewellery, sacred art, sculpture and textiles. The 19th-century building was previously the Vatican's embassy. For the free one-hour tours on alternate Saturdays, turn up ten minutes early.
