Long Description:
The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Portuguese: Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian) is a Portuguese private foundation of public utility whose statutory aims are in the fields of arts, charity, education, and science. Created by a clause in the will of Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian, a Portugal-based petrol magnate of Armenian origin, the Foundation's statutes were approved in 1956.

The foundation holds in it´s property the most important art collection in Portugal divided by it´s Museum (Museum) and Modern Art Center (CAM).

The premises include a large auditorium, a space for temporary exhibitions, a congress area with auditoriums and other rooms, as well as a large building that houses the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, Modern Art Center and the Art Library. The entire complex is set in the Gulbenkian Park, which was designed by Ribeiro Telles. In the park there are several sculptures exposed for the visitors. Some perfectly visible and others cleverly hidden.

Gulbenkian Gardens are a wonderfull place for walking and take a break from the city´s stress.
