A wonderful house museum
May 2019 • Family
Beautiful house projected by famous portuguese architect Raul Lino, bilt between 1905 and 1909, by order of José Relvas, himself an important politician who played an important role before, during and after the implantation of the republic on October 5, 1910, in Portugal.
After the death of his eldest son, who committed suicide at the age of 20, he accumulated an important and artistic treasure, with many works of painting, sculpture, Portuguese tiles, ceramics, furniture, textiles, etc. At his death, he bequeathed the house, along with an enormous collection of documents, to the municipality of Alpiarça, that in 1960 inaugurated it as house museum.
A personal friend of most representative artists of the time, José Relvas was also member of Freemasonry, much like the Republican revolutionaries, and his humanistic and progressive values were reflected in many (great) details of the house.
A worthwhile visit for all who appreciate art and want to learn a little about the history of Portugal and his rural world of the early 20th century. There are guided visits every 30 minutes.

Wonderful surprise
Mar 2019 • Couples
We had a superb guided visit to this most interesting property.
Note that the entrance is at the back of the museum and not well sign posted.
We started with a coffee at the nearby barrage, lovely setting.
The house is well worth a detour to visit, and as well as it’s interesting story, is full of some beautiful objects.

This is a great Museum to visit and to learn about the first Portuguese Republican that lived here. The rooms are full of pieces of Art and history of Alpiarça and Portugal. It is worth to visit.

A Wonderful, Thoroughly Enjoyable Package of Art, History, and Architecture
Jan 2019 • Couples
Guidebooks and the information provided by official tourism offices sometimes seem to imply that in Portugal everything of interest dates back at least to the eighteenth century. While picturesque castles and massive convents are wonderful, there are other things to see. Of considerable artistic (and historical!) interest are the related sites of Casa dos Patudos in Alpiarca and the Carlos Relvas Studio-House in Golegã.

The house is of great aesthetic and cultural interest for at least three reasons. In the first place the numerous rooms are beautifully designed and furnished; they form a rare and harmonious whole, one which has somehow been preserved for many decades. Secondly the house contains many works of art which would be worthy of a major museum. Thirdly, the house links many facets of Portuguese cultural and political history. For instance, it does so by tracing the tragic but creative and generous history of the family and by making clear the links between music and the fine arts and between the arts and democratic/republican values.

The Casa dos Patudos – Museu de Alpiarca has been beautifully and sensitively renovated, and is now open from 10:00 to 17:00. Visitors are necessarily accompanied by staff. Even when fluency in English is limited, staff provide much useful information and contribute significantly to the visit
