Traditional Kitchen Museum

Polo Museológico da Cozinha Tradicional (Traditional Kitchen Museum)

 The Traditional Kitchen takes visitors back in time to the kitchens of houses in the Algarve uplands and foothills around the mid-20th century. It first opened to the public in 1991, with the aim of showing a tiny part of the municipality's rural life that, little by little, is being replaced in the face of technological, economic and social progress. The collection is large and varied. It includes such items as the different types of boards used in bread-making, aluminium cutlery and kitchen utensils, the millstone used to grind maize into flour for xarém (maize porridge), dishes, platters and pans in copper and wire, gourds and the cork scoops used for drinking.
