Other interesting historical facts
Situated in a region with an occupation dating back to antiquity, this property is just 2 km from an ancient Celtic fort known for the manufacturing of millstones. The Romans also settled in the region close to an important road leading to what is now Coimbra. Later on, the Moors had a visible impact on the local landscape by planting orange trees and by their use of new technology for water management. All ancient occupants sought the mild climate and the abundance of water typical of this region, both favourable to their endevours.
