The building dates possibly from the late 16th century and like others manor houses, the edifice has undergone many restorations and additions over the years. However, the dominant period is that of the 18th century, displaying exquisite interiors with walls in azulejos and ceilings with beautiful relief stucco work and paintings of this period. The baroque framing of the palace is provided by the magnificent gardens.
The magnificent gardens, decorated in a remarkably interesting style, were built at three levels, surrounded by a wall with buttresses and sentries, like a 16th-century fortress. Among the vegetal species present, stands out a tulip poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), contemporary of the initial plantation.
