History & Geography
In a document from 1464, João Lourenço de Seara (a valet to King Afonso V), leases a vineyard by the Douro River to Abraão Farah, a jew from the Judiaria da Lágea, Lamego, in a place where the river gently bends in an “s” shaped curve. Since then, the place became known as Vale de Abraão. By the end of 19th century, Laura Pereira Leitão, descendant of João Lourenço de Seara, and her husband settle at Quinta Vale de Abraão. Vale de Abraão became this couple's permanent residence so major renovations were undertaken. A tower was built and the chapel moved inside the house. Gardens and lakes designed, exotic trees planted in the woods, and paths and follies add to the beauty of the property. Vale de Abraão became the most fashionable and beautifully appointed quinta in the Douro Valley and an iconic place in the panorama of Portuguese culture when Agustina Bessa Luís published the novel Vale Abraão (1991) later, in 1993, taken to the cinema by Manoel de Oliveira.
