Collection: Weapons

This chamber gathers some of the weapons collected by the 2nd Viscount of Pindela, Vicente Pinheiro Lobo Machado de Melo e Almada (Guimarães, 1852 – Vila Nova de Famalicão, 1922), politician, colonial administrator, Portuguese diplomat and writer. This Collection, consisting mainly of swords and daggers, firearms and pieces of armour, ‘was one of the most important private collections of armaments ever gathered in Northern Portugal, in the nineteenth-century and early twentieth century’.
