In 1830, JoÃ£o Carlos Francisco de Saldanha, the maternal grandson of the Marques de Pombal built a Mansion on the terraces of the hills of Sintra.
Surrounded by verdant gardens, Quinta do Saldanha is composed of a noble country house and chapel. From 1834, the Duque de Saldanha made several improvements in his house, where he spent part of his life. Later, at the far end of the estate, he ordered the building of a semi-circular building, which he offered to his mother, which today constitutes a distinct property known as Casa Italiana.
A fantastic example of the traditional architecture of the region, with gothic appointments in the windows and an entrance composed of pillars and balcony corresponding to the medieval period.
Outside, the green spaces show the inspiration in the medieval and classical gardens. The chapel was also fully restored maintaining the original pieces from the century of its construction, and has an original Manueline frontage, which comes from the Convent of Penha Longa.
The interior of the Palacete has a very well-kept and rich decoration, between medieval and modern age. The structure of the Quinta do Saldanha is developed in the shape of an L, constructed over the Ground floor, 1st Floor and 2nd Floor.
There is an intermediate floor between the garage and the ground floor, with an area of 200 sqm which is unfinished. The garage has a capacity for 8 cars, the house has 2 entrance gates for cars and 2 small gates for pedestrians.
