Museu do Ouro de Travassos

Museums and Palaces

The Gold Museum was created with the aim of promoting and enhancing the work carried out by the goldsmiths of Travassos, a village where there are various workshops in operation.

During the fifty years that he spent working as a goldsmith, Francisco de Carvalho e Sousa collected the pieces and documents now on display, revealing a particular way of making filigree objects, resulting from the accumulation of the secrets and knowledge acquired over various generations.

The exhibition displays the equipment used in workshops, the tools used by the goldsmiths themselves, some silver objects and various pieces made of gold, including some archaeological finds, such as a diadem from the Copper Age and a Roman earring.
