António Carneiro (1872-1930) was born in Amarante and has spent part of his youth in the humanitarian establishment of Barão de Nova Sintra where he revealed his artistic talents. In 1920, António Carneiro built a house to establish the family atelier and the residence of his musician son Cláudio Carneiro that was born in Bonfim. The building was designed in 1923 by Manuel Duarte Moreira de Sá e Melo and Álvaro Pinto de Miranda, António Carneiro’s close friend. António Carneiro House and Workshop opened its doors in 1973 after the bought of the building by the Municipality of Porto. There you can appreciate some pieces of art and objects that are in the exhibitions rooms, such as painting materials, documents, books, photography, and many paintings of António Carneiro and family (Source: Jorge Ricardo Pinto (2011), Bonfim - Território de Memórias e Destinos).
