Museu do Aljube

Neither the haunting quality nor the importance of this poignant museum can be understated. Housed in the former preferred prison of the Portuguese dictatorship, the museum chronicles the oppression, disappearances, coercion, censorship, torture, and other political and criminal misdoings that occurred during António de Oliveira Salazar’s authoritarian rule. The exhibitions, spread over three harrowing floors and arranged by topic, end with the regime’s undoing during the 1970s' Revolution of the Carnations, giving you a complete picture of this agonizing yet significant time in Portuguese history.
