This small museum, located in a former watermill, showcases the works of Artur Anjos Teixeira and his son, Pedro Augusto Anjos Teixeira. In 1974, Pedro generously donated his entire non-realist sculpture collection to the Town Council, ensuring their works remain in Sintra. Pedro's artistic style was influenced by Naturalism, Realism, late Naturalism, and Neorealism. The sculptors' themes include human and animal anatomy, work, freedom, professions, the female condition, as well as historic and religious figures.

Anjos Teixeira Museum

The Anjos Teixeira museum was established in 1976 and was where Pedro worked and taught sculpture from 1977 to 1992. The museum showcases sculptures made from various materials, such as plaster, marble, and bronze, along with drawings and prototypes. Pedro Augusto's works mainly revolve around the study of the female form, pastoral landscapes, and rural life in the neorealism style. Additionally, the museum offers recreational and educational activities for young children. You can access the museum by going down some steps located at the apex of the bend in the road Volta do Duche that leads to the old town from the train station.
