CASA DE GOUVÃES

Casa de Mateus

The Foundation of Casa de Mateus, in Vila Real, is one of the most active cultural institutions in the country. Built during the first half of the 18th century, its baroque architecture, of Italian influence, is assigned to Nicolau Nasoni for the resemblance in style with other buildings of this famous architect. Besides the splendor of the main façade and the rich decoration, it also has beautiful gardens that invite you to a walk, a Chapel and a Wine cellar. We suggest a guided tour and a visit to the store, where you can purchase the local products such as the delicious jams.
