Grão Vasco Museum
Vasco Fernandes, who lived in the end of the 15th century and beginning of the 16th, and supposedly was born in Viseu, is one of the top Portuguese painters of his epoch.
His masterpiece is a portrait of St Peter, famous for its symmetric conception.No surprise that the main museum in town, close to the cathedral, and showing his work and more, took his name - Grão means... great.
Almost as old as Portugal, this cathedral suffered many modifications, since the initial construction, in the 12th century, under our first king - Afonso Henriques.
The initial Gothic is still present, together with the successive adding covering the evolution of styles - Manueline, Renaissance and Baroque.
