About Us

Palácio do Correio Velho was founded in 1989 with the purpose of entering the Art market in order to provide the best possible service in this important business of identification, preservation and transmission of antiques and works of Art.
The opening Auction for the start of Palácio do Correio Velho’s activity was with “Biblioteca de D. Carlos I e de D. Manuel II” which became emblematic for the company in the market due to its outstanding quality and rarity. Palácio do Correio Velho soon established itself in a leadership position in the Art, antiques and books Auction market.
Palácio do Correio Velho has had the collaboration of a wide range of national and international connoisseurs, specialists or experts, also cooperating with several museums on identifying and categorizing works of Art.
The most brilliant moments of its activity have been the Live Auctions of outstandingly valuable private collections of Antiques, Modern and Contemporary Art and Books.
Always on the lead of the Art market in Portugal, it was the first company of the Auction Business to be online by creating a website and taking the first steps in the online auctions.
In effect, in 2014, in addition to the great live auctions of Antiques, Palácio do Correio Velho started its Online Auctions, where theme identification for both partial and whole auction allows clients swifter recognition and access. We highlight themes like Collectables, Books, Ancient Prints, Medals, Wines, Porcelain, and Classic Toys.

For the sales of cultural historical assets involving ivory, Palácio do Correio Velho is careful when it comes to complying with all local and global laws enforced for this sector. We always act in compliance with CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) and all existing national regulations.


Over the years, Palácio do Correio has been very pleased to support several philanthropic initiatives through its structure, either by facilitating the sale of works of Art whose value helps major causes, or by offering its facilities to host fund raising events. We intend to maintain this same constructive journey aware of the surrounding community social responsibilities that fall upon us.


We have adopted responsible work practices, promoting the most well-balanced work environment. For that reason, we try to manage and increasingly improve our paper, water and electric energy consumption.
