SANTO TIRSO RESIDENCY: MUSEU INTERNACIONAL DE ESCULTURA CONTEMPORÂNEA
Museu Internacional de Escultura Contemporânea - International Museum of Contemporary Sculpture Santo Tirso. Developed since 1990 MIEC is a slowly maturing project that offers a diverse collection of international work both within its building and outside across the city's spaces and gardens.
We had an informative guided tour of the museum, which has been presented within the original monastery which closed in 1934. The artifacts on display have been found in the local area and range from the Roman Empire to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.
