Ferreira de Castro Museum

The house where the writer from Ossela was born is from the middle of the 19th century with a rural plan, picturing the humble origins. The Ferreira de Castro Museum has two floors. In the first floor there is a cellar, where there are some utensils used in agriculture at the time: press, squeezer, salting chest and six casks, which contrast with the paintings offered to the author by renamed painters.

The second floor has four small rooms: the kitchen, the living room, Ferreira de Castro’s bedroom, where there also are the shoes and the suitcase used in 1939 in his trip around the world, and Mrs. Maria Rosa’s bedroom, the writer’s mother. Another preciosity at the museum is an old dictionary that was his first wealth in Belém do Pará.

Outside the house, by express will of the writer, are kept the backyard and the woods with the existing trees or, in substitution, others of the same species.
