Just back from the river is the handsomely renovated medieval town house where, according to legend, Henry the Navigator was born in 1394. The building later served as Porto’s first customs house. Today it houses three floors of exhibits on the complex activities of the customs house throughout the centuries. In 2002 the complex was excavated, revealing Roman foundations as well as some remarkable mosaics – all of which are now on display.
