Museu Visigótico

Baixo Alentejo

Found just beyond the castle, the unusual Visigothic museum is housed in the former Igreja de Santo Amaro, parts of which date from the early 6th century, when it was a Visigothic church – meaning it’s one of Portugal’s oldest standing buildings. Inside, the original columns display intriguing, beautiful carvings. The admission fee includes entry to the Museu Regional de Beja.
