Quinta da Cruz is a Centre for Contemporary Art placed in a beautiful natural setting in the outskirts of Viseu.
Bought by Nicolau de Mendonça Falcão do Amaral at the end of the 18th century, the whole property covers a 10 ha green area, inhabited by exotic botanical species, along with indigenous plants.
In 2014 Quinta da Cruz reopened its doors as a Centre for Contemporary Art. The main goal was to bring the local community closer to art, while attracting new audiences. It presents temporary exhibitions, creative workshops and programmes designed for families.
A place where art meets nature.
