Library

The Municipal Library of Olhão was inaugurated on June 16, 2008. With the area of approximately 2623m2 spread over 3 floors, the Library was built in the place of old Hospital, built by the fishing community in 1884.

The Municipal Library inherited a valuable documentary fund with about 15,000 volumes from the former Biblioteca Fixa nº 5 of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. Currently it offers more than 40,000 documents.
