THE PALACE IN THE WOODS

Serralves House-Museum nestles in the midst of a fairy tale garden, in the centre of the historic city of Oporto. Surrounded by 18 hectares of nature and by one of the most important Museums of the “unvanquished” city, the House-Museum is a unique example of Art Deco dating from the 1930s.

The house, belonging to the Count of Vizela (Carlos Alberto Cabral), has been worked on by some of the most outstanding names in architecture like Marques da Silva, Charles Siclis, Jacques Émile Ruhlmann, René Lalique and Edgar Brandt, although the architectural design is attributed to the first two.
