Company details

The Palace of Muge estate has a secular history, dating back to several years before belong to the family Cadaval. It once was inhabited by Queen Eleanor of Austria (third wife of King Manuel I, sister of the Emperor Carlos V and mother of Infanta Maria), who lived here until 1530, when she married the King of France, Francis I. It is only later, at the beginning of the 17th century, that the property, then owned by the family of the counts of Odemira, came under the domain of the Casa Cadaval, when her daughter, Dona Maria de Faro, Countess of Odemira, married D. Nuno Álvares Pereira de Melo, 5th count of Tentúgal, 4th Marquis of Ferreira and 1st Duke of Cadaval. The Casa Cadaval has today a property totaling approximately of 5400 hectares and is managed, as it was in the 4 consecutive generations before, by a woman, Teresa Schönborn, Countess of Schönborn and Wiesentheid, Chairman of the Board of Directors of this House.
