Save it

Alvo Brandão Perestrello Godinho, heir of Balsemão viscounts, had this palace be built in the 18th century. In 1894 it worked as a guesthouse and it took in the exiled king of Sardinia and Piedmont, also known as Carlos Alberto. Nowadays, the palace is where the Board of Municipal Culture and the Supply Centre are located and it’s also where the city’s characteristic elements such as tiles, plasters and irons are stored. The Numismatic Office, which has one of the most complete collections in the country narrating how the coin came about also works there. The entry is always free.
