Welcome to “Casa das Histórias”, home of the Portuguese painter Paula Rego’s storytales.

Casa das Histórias is the name of the museum that houses part of the work of the Portuguese painter, Paula Rego. It is located in Cascais, a beautiful town in the seaside, 30km west from Lisbon. The building was designed by the Portuguese Pritzker-awarded architect, Eduardo Souto Moura.

I find this building absolutely beautiful. It is easily recognizable thanks to its pyramid-shaped towers and the red-colored concrete used in its construction. I just love how its shape, color, and texture stand against the blue sky.

The trees that surround the building existed there previously to this project and were incorporated in it. They fit perfectly with the building. When I visited Casa das Histórias on a sunny winter afternoon, they were casting their shadows beautifully against the orange walls.

The entrance to the museum is free, but you’re not allowed to take pictures inside!
