The Museum of Évora was officially created in 1915 and went through several vicissitudes until it was permanently installed in the old Archiepiscopal Palace (late 16th century and early 17th century). Its historical origins are linked to the collections gathered by Frei Manuel do Cenáculo Vilas Boas and much added with artistic values coming from the extinct religious houses and private donations. Underwent a thorough renovation in 1940, under the guidance of Prof. Mário Chicó, with the following sections being valued: Archaeology, Architecture, Sculpture, Epigraphy, Heraldry, Goldsmithing, Decorative Arts and Painting, being this hub the most remarkable.
