Museu de Carrosses FúnebresFor those with a curious and vaguely morbid interest in death and all things funereal, this tiny and well-hidden museum of hearses, housed in the basement of the municipal funeral services building, is the perfect place to spend a sobering afternoon. Boasting the world's biggest collection of elaborate carriages, cars, photographs and artefacts, complete with scary model horses and pallbearers, it really is strictly for those of a more melancholy nature.
