Ceretos Museum by Joaquim Portela Arquitetos

The Museum is the Careto that overlooks at the Azibo, river in the Douro River basin.

It raises in order to strengthen the entrance, allowing a great pedestrian and visual permeability over the entire area of intervention.

Create an area for public use – the Museum gardens – which will be an extension of the exhibition area, outdoors.

The building is divided into three levels of use: at the entrance level, a public area with access to the reception/ticket offce, store and cafeteria (the latter also with exterior access).
