The Soares dos Reis National Museum’s summer programme continues in September and maintains the Meetings on Saturday. On 16 September, the agenda includes a guided tour in Portuguese about a Medieval Christ sculpture and other segments of European art.


On the second floor of the long-term exhibition, dedicated to the diversity of collections, visitors are taken to the gallery where there is a large-format Christ, from the 13th century and of peninsular origin, which takes us back to other highly qualified images of European production.


The sculpture is one of a small number of wooden Christs on the cross in Portugal and until recently it was in the reserves of the Soares dos Reis National Museum.


Activity held in Portuguese.
