"Manor house" Vila Real Things to Do Tip by micas_pt

Vila Real Things to Do: 7 reviews and 7 photos


Also on this same square we came across a beautiful manor house that seems to host some public service, although I didn’t find much info about it. As we visited on a Sunday it was closed and we could freely walk around and go up and down its main stairs.

On top of the main stairs there is a white marble piece on the wall, which is a tribute to the soldiers from this City and its surroundings who died in WWI.

Manor houses are quite frequent on the North of Portugal, and some of them are very well kept, being in same family over the centuries; some other host public services (Town Hall for instance), as is the case of this beautiful manor house.
