The small house is the former residence of the locally born painter José Cercas (1914-1992) during the last days of his life.

The house contains a collection of both Portuguese and foreign ceramics, sacred art, sculptures as well as period furniture. Some of the artist's work and paintings by other Portuguese artists are also on display. The house was left to the municipality of Aljezur and converted into a museum in 1995.
