In the perfect amalgamation of the old and the new, the city’s newest art museum sees an easily 10th-century palace (Palacete Dom João) joined to a modern former police building via an undulating concrete roof. Its unique exterior is enough to lure you into the artistic talents that await inside, mostly comprising modern art.
