Portugal

The present-day Casa da Ínsua was built in the 18th century by Luís de Albuquerque de Mello Pereira e Cáceres, Captain General and Governor of Mato Grosso and Guiabá, Brazil. It occupied the place of the former Casa da Ínsua, which had been erected by João de Albuquerque e Castro, Mayor of Sabugal, and has kept some elements from the original construction, such as the chapel and balcony. Today you can still see references to the previous owners, namely on the western façade on a coat of arms bearing the arms of the Albuquerques and the flowery cross of the Pereiras, as well as on murals on the entrance ceiling. You can find evidence of Luís Albuquerque's stay in Brazil on a variety of objects, mostly handmade hunting and fishing tools and primitive weapons of Brazilian Indians, as well as some war devices of the Castilian army. – Description from dvoristanac
