The Abílio de Mattos e Silva Museum was impulsionated by Maria José Salavisa more than fifteen years ago. Abilio de Mattos e Silva was a painter, set designer and costume designer, born in Sardoal in 1908, and died in 1985. Although not originally from Obidos, this was his land of choice, where he was raised and where he kept a residence with his wife, the architect Maria José Salavisa. Although he turned out to be a promising artist in the Visual Arts, he ended up dedicating himself to a creative activity full of great vitality, linked to theater and opera.
