Built between 1714 and 1730, the house "Casa de Nossa Senhora da Aurora" is an urban baroque palace and it represents the most frequent typology of those times. A long two-floor house divided by a horizontal frieze, an interior staircase and a chapel addorsed to one of the facades.
Also called "Casa do Arrabalde", it has a smooth frontispiece, a fenestrated noble floor wall ripped by eleven balcony windows with triangular pediments and forged iron gratings.
Inside the chapel there is an 18th century retable with national style carvings, as well as baroque tiles from the Capela da Senhora do Rosário (doesn't exists anymore).
The gardens were designed in the baroque style and are a leisure space with boxwoods, benches, lakes and different fountains.
