Photographer's Note

The estate has been owned by the family D'Eηa since 1520. It was given to D.Maria da Silva and D. Pedro D'Eηa as a wedding present in 1520 by D. Brites de Lara, marquise of Vila Real and Lady of the celebrated Quinta da Bacalhτa. As there were no direct heirs, the property passed to another family branch, the Corte-Real family, then to the Saldanha family, and then to the Melo family, Lords of Murca. The Quinta das Torres has been in the same family for six generations after being bought by Dr. Manuel Bento de Sousa in 1877.
