Visitamos o museu têxtil, mas a coleção não era interessante, as explicações não estavam em inglês e o museu era muito pequeno. Não valeu a pena! more »We visited the Textile Museum, but the collection was not interesting, the explanations were not in English and the museum was very small. It wasn't worth it!
