LMT Abreu Loureiro, Correia de Matos & Galvão Teles is an Art, History and Heritage consulting firm. Its constitution arose from the wish to join efforts, gather skills and make the knowledge and experience acquired over many years of work available to other persons and institutions.

We provide a diverse range of services in history and heritage research and advice - genealogy and family history, biography, iconography, study and prospecting for art, antiques and books, etc. - with the aim of transforming an idea or aspiration into a unique and original project, tailored to each client.

At LMT Abreu Loureiro, Correia de Matos & Galvão Teles we promote a spirit of partnership and operate with accuracy, flexibility, professionalism and confidentiality. We appreciate demanding customers who value the History, Heritage, Art and Culture of our country; who, ultimately, recognize themselves in our identity.

Thus, we have spent hours in archives and libraries, wandered around Portugal, photographed and recorded the most beautiful things we could find, lost ourselves in used bookstores, antique dealers and auction houses... In fact, we very much like what we do and we want our customers to share this enthusiasm!
