#7 of 30 in Museums in Porto
The Casa do Infante (House of the Prince), or alternately as the Alfândega Velha (Old Customshouse) is a historical house in the civil parish of Cedofeita, Santo Ildefonso, Sé, Miragaia, São Nicolau e Vitória, in the municipality of Porto, in northern Portugal.

The house was originally built in the 14th century as customs and mint, although its present condition derives mostly from a remodelling carried out in the 17th century. Its name derived from an oral tradition that suggested the house was the birthplace of Prince Henry the Navigator in 1394. The Casa do Infante is located in the historical centre of Porto, designated World Heritage Site by UNESCO

  • Worth a visit. The reconstruction of the medieval city with interactive explanations is by itself worth the 2.20 euro entrance. Some other parts of the museums are however a bit boring and do not seem to have a unified theme.
  • Free on the weekends. I liked the section on Brazil!
