"This guide is like a map for the visitor of our museum. It highlights the willingness to make a visit to the past of an institution.

Created between the trip to India and Brazil, in 1499, we are the legitimate heirs of a tradition that consubstantiates itself in the name of our museum - MMIPO, Museu da Misericórdia do Porto.
The dream meets with the reality of our collection in the form a memory that is perpetuated in time. I believe it was the Conde de Samodães who first spoke about a Museum of Misericórdia do Porto, at the end of the nineteenth century." (António Tavares)
