Fundão Route | Manuela Justino Art Gallery

Born in Castelo Novo, Manuela Justino was considered one of the most original artists of the 2nd half of the 20th century, having managed to transmit the connection between different scales and artistic territories, as a painter and sculptor. The Manuela Justino Art Gallery is thus constituted as her artistic memory, assuming itself as a new element of valorisation of the historical and cultural path of the Historic Village of Castelo Novo.
