Long Description:
[PT]
A Casa-Museu Guerra Junqueiro, ou Casa do Dr. Domingos Barbosa é um centro cultural construído em memória do famoso poeta e escritor Guerra Junqueiro, localizado no Porto, em Portugal.

Nascido a 1850, em Freixo de Espada à Cinta Abílio Manuel Guerra Junqueiro, publicou os seus primeiros versos aos 14 anos, corria o ano de 1864. Faleceu em 1923 com o sonho de uma casa onde pudesse expor todos os objectos que coleccionou ao longo da sua existência e um maravilhoso espólio literário.

O palacete, datado de 1730 e atribuído a Nicolau Nasoni, está localizado na Rua de D. Hugo, nº 32, na cidade do Porto, e foi doado em 1940 pela família do escritor à Câmara Municipal da cidade, juntamente com o espólio do poeta, com a condição que lá fossem expostas todas as peças que tinham sido reunidas em várias viagens que o escritor fez.

Expostas no museu podemos ver uma colecção de arte sacra, faiança de Viana do Castelo, pratos de Nuremberga, cerâmicas e mobiliário.
