Description

The palace was built in the eighteenth century by the Sinel de Cordes family. In the 19th century, the palace was bought by José Correia Godinho da Costa, 1st Viscount of Correia Godinho. At that time some architectural modifications were introduced, such as the balustrade and the four allegorical statues at the top.
