Arquivo Histórico António Rosa Mendes

Vila Real de Santo António
VRSA , Vila Real de Santo António

Algarve-born historian António Rosa Mendes left a research legacy and a great many followers who have made him an unrivalled figure in the contemporary history of the Algarve's identity. Having died prematurely in his 50s, he was honoured in 2014, a year after his death, by Vila Real de Santo António municipal council, which named the city's history archive after him. This is an inviting space in which to study or carry out research, but also to visit exhibitions and where there is a room set aside for the "Liga dos Amigos do Mestre Manuel Cabanas" (League of Friends of Mestre Manuel Cabanas). The League devotes its time to extolling the values of this illustrious wood-carver and thinker from Vila Nova de Cacela.
