The Palacete Sárrea Garfías (Manor House Sárrea Garfías), a neoclassical manor house with traces of baroque, dates back to the 17th century and was rebuilt by Joaquim Ignácio Pacheco de Sárrea after the 1755 earthquake. The Sárreas were big agrarian landowners, who held high military positions. After the proclamation of the republic, the manor was acquired by the Portimão Municipality, becoming the site of the Council Chambers and an Art and Trade School and was later used for other public services such as court houses, tax departments, the municipal library and many other uses. Now the Portimão Municipal Theatre (TEMPO) is hosted here as an icon of the renovated city with the 1º de Dezembro garden in front, built in perfect harmony with this old manor house.

Open to the public.
Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday 2pm – 7pm.
Closed: Sunday and Monday (except for shows).
