The Observation Tower museum and The Archeological Ruins

Installed in the Castle Keep, in the heart of the Historic Area, this Center was created to enhance the Tower in itself, but also to make known the architectural, historical, and cultural heritage of Melgaço.

The interior exhibition focuses on the architectural and archaeological heritage, from Prehistory to the Contemporary Age.
Associated with this Center are the Ruins, located in Praça da República, where you can observe and interpret part of the county’s medieval history. The space consists of a medieval moat, through which one circulates, and sidewalks from different periods, and other pieces found during excavations can still be observed, such as a catapult projectile and several throwing stones.
