Museum Center of Castro Laboreiro

The Museum Center of Castro Laboreiro is located in the headquarters of the former Caravelos Chocolate Factory.

Dedicated to the history and tradition of Castro Laboreiro, the largest and oldest in the county, this nucleus discloses aspects related to the landscape and local life, namely with regard to Brandas, Inverneiras, and Planalto. In the house attached to the headquarters, a typically fortified construction, the atmosphere of a local house in the second half of the 20th century is portrayed.
It has a documentation center and, on the upper floor, a space where it is possible to watch films about the Castro traditions.
