The Biscainhos Museum is housed in the Palace of Biscainhos – home of the counts of Bertiandos – founded in the 17th century and transformed in the first half of the 18th century.

In 1978 it was converted into a museum. The Palace, the baroque gardens and their collections reveal the daily life of the 17th century nobility and the other inhabitants of the space: chaplains, servants and slaves.
