Description

Set in the urban grid of the Baixa district, the Church of São Julião and the attached block were a product of the reconstruction project for the area after the earthquake of 1755. The whole block has belonged to Banco de Portugal since the 1930s, with the church having been converted to office space. After the remodelling and restoration work on the whole block the church is now a cultural space open to the community. It houses the new Money Museum, which displays its permanent collection in a number of nuclei using interactive technology, hosts other temporary exhibitions and is also home to the King Dinis Wall Interpretation Centre.
