In 1997 the Portuguese Centre for Photography took up its new home in the building that was once the city prison and courthouse. The inaugural exhibition was devoted to the historic photographic archive of inmates. 'Murmúrios do Tempo' (Whispers of Time) is the accompanying book which reproduces some of the thousands of inmate registry photographs and details both the history of the prison and the documentary methods and criminal theory of the time.
