Opened in 2010, this quirkily-named museum houses the private collection of Portuguese car fanatic Joao Magalhaes.

There are more than 80 vintage and modern cars here, arranged in 10 themed areas such as Belle Epoque, Art Deco 30s and English Tradition.

Alongside the cars, presumably to interest the wives of petrol heads, are beguiling displays of fashionable travel memorabilia from the 20s, 30s 40s and 50s, including a collection of 300 vintage hats.
