Cascais Cultural Centre


Time Out says

In its first incarnation, the building currently housing the Cascais Cultural Centre (CCC) was a convent, occupied by the Order of the Barefoot Carmelites from 1641 to 1834. It then became the summer palace of the Gandarinha Viscount, was sold in the 20th century and, in 1977, it was acquired by the Cascais City Hall, and converted into the CCC in 2000. The Centre hosts several exhibitions throughout the year in its three floors, both by Portuguese and foreign artists. There are also concerts and a patio where other events are held. Beyond temporary exhibitions, you can always find on display works from the collection of the D.Luís Foundation, which is in charge of the CCC’s program. These works include paintings, sculptures and installations - go up to the second floor to check them out. As part of the 2018 Cascais European Youth Capital, there is a series of eight temporary exhibitions by eight young Portuguese artists, called “oitoxoito”.
