Museu de Lisboa – Santo António

The Museum of Lisbon is a multi-branched museum comprised of five distinct spaces: Palácio Pimenta, Roman Theatre, Saint Anthony Museum, Casa dos Bicos and the West Tower. The first four spaces present long duration exhibitions that complement one another despite having their own distinct themes.

St. Anthony, one of Lisbon’s most beloved saints, fittingly has his museological altar located next to the church to whom he is dedicated, right beside the Cathedral of Lisbon, the city where he was born and where he spent his first 20 years. Previously named Museu Antoniano, opened to the public in June 1962, it was recently renovated, featuring a new amplified and reconfigured exhibition space. Containing an area for long duration exhibitions and a documentation centre, it continues to pay homage to a saint that even Italians claim as one of their own.
