António Aleixo Cultural Centre
The old Municipal Market
Housed in the old municipal market of Vila Real de Santo António, in the Algarve, the António Aleixo Cultural Centre is totally dedicated to cultural entertainment. It owes its name to António Aleixo, one of the greatest poets of the country, born in this town. It was originally the headquarters of military garrison, built upon its foundation. Later transformed into vegetable market, it is now a multiuse space, with a large auditorium which allows the organization of various activities, such as shows, temporary exhibitions, seminars, conferences or congresses.
"This old municipal market now offers a contemporary vision of culture."
