Lamego is an attractive town with Renaissance and baroque mansions overlooked by two hills. On one of the hills are the ruins of a 12th century castle, on the other is the monumental baroque Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios. A marvelous granite staircase decorated with tiles, allegorical fountains, small chapels, and statues leads to a baroque church with views over the town. Photos of the Sanctuary are included on another web page referenced from the main page. The town museum, one of the country's best regional museums, is housed in an 18th century Bishop's Palace, and the photos below provide a glimpse of what can be found in the museum.
The first three photos highlight a current restoration project.
