Concluded in 1969, according to plans by architects Alberto Pessoa, Pedro Cid and Rui Athouguia, the buildings of the Gulbenkian Foundation Headquarters and Museum are prime examples of the Modern Movement and were pioneering for their time.

On this tour, you will have the opportunity to move through various spaces, including areas that are usually closed to the public. From the rationale behind the project to the material elements of the construction, discover this unique work, where architecture and nature are always in conversation.

All tours must be booked at least two weeks in advance.


Guided by Carlos Carrilho, Daniela Arnaut, Jorge Lopes
