Slow down from the busy sightseeing at the Serralves Villa and take a trip back in time. This unique example of Art Deco architecture was built in the 1930s. The Villa belonged to Count Alberto Cabral and is part of the Fundação Serralves. A Casa de Serralves benefited from the intervention of leading figures of the time, such as Marques da Silva, Charles Siclis, Jacques Émile Ruhlmann, René Lalique and Edgar Brandt. We were amazed by all the details and great material combinations that have been used in the interior. Luckily the sun was shining and the Villa looked even more radiant in the sunlight. The surrounding park is just beautiful and you'll feel very relaxed and calm after the visit. So, be sure to take at least 3 hours if you want to visit everything (including the contemporary museum by Alvaro Siza).
We tried our best with the pictures but you must go and see by yourself!
See you in Porto,
