Guests will visit Casa de Nossa Senhora d'Aurora and it's gardens, guided by one of the owners who explains the history of the house and the family. You will visit a total of 7 rooms, including the Old Kitchen, filled with a collection of old kitchen appliances, the Grand Entrance Room, the Indian Room, the Chapel, the Library and the Dining Room. We then go out into the garden, built after the house was finished. It's the typical 18th century "Jardin à la Française", with box hedges and camelia that are over a hundred years old. Casa de Nossa Senhora d'Aurora is classified as Monument of Public Interest owned by the same family since the 16th century. Its rooms hold period furniture and curiosities gathered over the years. It is one of the most prominent houses in Ponte de Lima, and belonged to our grandfather, Conde d'Aurora, who was also an important personality during the 30's, 40's and 50's, having published numerous books and articles about local traditions and culture.
My brothers and I inherited this property in 2012, and have since started to do guided visits to the house and garden, sharing with our guests this 18th century noble house. Growing up in this house, I learned all the family history and the stories told by my mother, aunts and grandmother in front of the fireplace. I share these with our guests, making them re-live old times and meet the by-gone characters that once lived here. I know every object, especially those in my father's kitchen appliance and gadget collection. I speak Portuguese, English, and reasonable Spanish, French and Italian.
