This house is of historical importance because the founder of Quepem town built it.

It was the wish of its founder, that the house be preserved.

In 1825, he even presented it to the Viceroys of India-Portuguesa to spend their holidays, so that they could preserve the house (and institutions) he had founded.

After his death, the Palácio was occupied by a Chaplain.

Around 1989, this house was given to some nuns to be run as a home for destitute women.

The fury of the tropical climate made the maintenance of such a large house a Herculean task and, they too abandoned the house.

Finally, it was decided to privatize it and open it up for public viewing.
