Petit Futé's opinion on MMIPO - MUSEU E IGREJA DA MISERICORDIA DO PORTO

Vintage plate 2020

Located in the heart of Porto's historic centre, in a building that was the headquarters of the charitable institution "Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Porto" from the 16th century until 2015, when it was transformed into a museum. A pleasant place to visit, with 7 rooms, in which the works are well displayed. The ex-libris of the collections presented by the museum is the famous work Fons Vitae (source of life), of first importance in Flemish painting, dating from 1515-1517 and whose author is Colijn de Coter. The painting, oil painting on cork oak, is impressive: it measures 2.67 metres high by 2.10 metres wide and occupies the centre of a room dedicated to it. The museum's objective is to make the history of the institution and its works known. The benefactors' room, among other things, is worth a visit to discover the city's social history. The size of the paintings is determined according to the donations received. The juxtaposed church, dating from the 16th century, is also part of the museum, its organ and azulejos are notable. From the facade of the new building, built in the 18th century by the architect Nicolau Nasoni when the church was in danger of crumbling, emerges a monumental sculpture, a kind of dragon or snake that would lean its neck towards the street. The Benefactors' Gallery, where temporary exhibitions are held, is an example of the city's glass and iron-based architecture.

Intéressant mais sans plus
Un très beau bâtiment, très moderne, dans la très jolie rue piétonne des Flores. Le plus intéressant pour moi : la vue magnifique sur la cathédrale depuis le troisième et dernier étage. La visite de l'église contigue est incluse dans la visite, mais sinon le musée est une collection assez peu variée de portraits de donateurs de l'institutions et d'objets religieux (statues en bois) issues des environs. Un endroit très calme, un des moins fréquentés de Porto au cours de notre séjour entre Noël et le Nouvel An décembre 2019.

Marché de Noël sympathique au cœur du hall du musée. On peut rentrer dans l'église pendant les offices (à condition de respecter la prière).
