Casa-Museu Abel Salazar

Casa-Museu Abel Salazar

The noted 20th-century Portuguese scientist, artist and social thinker Abel Salazar spent 30 years of his life in Matosinhos, and the home he lived in has been turned into a museum.

 

This three-storey building is mainly dedicated to Salazar’s art, which is in the Neo-Realist style and includes hammered copper, pen drawings, sculptures, oil paintings and sketches.

 

To show you just how diverse Salazar’s talents were you can see his home laboratory on the second floor, with rooms full of equipment and revealing his research in biology that lifted him to prominence in the 1920s.
