Casa Grande de Romarigães

Paredes de Coura
Description
The farm was handed down four generations of the Cunhas de Antas family. In 1809, when one of Napoleon’s military division was in the region, the house was ransacked and the chapel destroyed. The house deteriorated when it came into the possession of D. António Telmo de Menezes Montenegro, who mortgaged it. On 27 June 1891, it was auctioned off to Counsellor Miguel Dantas. Then it was bought by Dr. Bernardino Machado and his grand-daughter, D. Jerónima Dantas Machado, who married Aquilino Ribeiro. The writer and author of the novel A Casa Grande de Romarigães remodelled the residential part of the house in the 1950s and 1960s, and restored the chapel.
The architectural buildings are set in a rural environment and are known for the chapel of Nossa Senhora do Amparo, described by Aquilino Ribeiro as follows: “With the exception of the lower part of the façade with a simple door, but still boasting a frame with flowers as lintels, and two grilled windows, resembling the Renaissance style, the all the stones in the entire façade were prepared as if by goldsmiths and not sculptors."
