That was precisely on the balcony of our familly house that, in 1885, Ramalho Ortigão, a famous portuguese poet, wrote his famous writing "As Farpas" (Chapter VI). In this text, he makes a wonderful description of the Estate and its surroundings.


Beneath the north-facing balcony lies a wide slope of low and thick vine, in all the shades of green, from the brightest to the darkest, bristled with mature autumn paints in amber and fiery, blond, red, chalky spots. Below, the sprawling Douro River depicts a huge S across the valley, gleaming between rips of olive and orchard, behind the lush branches of poplars and alders.
