This was, in 1325, Porto’s first customs building, and later, in 1394, the birthplace of Prince Henry the Navigator. After centuries of hosting royal services in Porto, the building eventually became a museum in 2001. There you will learn about the Roman and medieval history of the riverside area. There is a “Medieval Porto Model” representing Porto as it was in 1500 and a collection of one hundred 16th and 17th century lead stamps from various countries.
