Queen Leonor Museum - Portugal

Beja is one of the portuguese capital cities but this is only my second card from there. It was sent by José and it shows the Queen Leonor Museum.

Queen Leonor Museum or Beja Regional Museum is a Museum in Beja, Portugal, installed in the Conceição Convent. The Convent was founded in 1459, by the Infante D. Fernando, brother of D. Afonso V, and by his wife, Dª Beatriz.
Beja Regional Museum possesses several articles documenting a fairly extended period of time – from pre-history to the present day. The collections of archaeology, painting, tiles, ceramics, jewellery and sculpture and metrology are stand out for their historical and artistic value.
