    The origin of the property's name

    The name of the Quinta RICA-FÉ is mentioned already in 1258 in the Afonsine Ordinations. It is formed by the combination of Rich with Faith (Saint Foi).

    Tradition of Agriculture and Livestock

    Around 1225 the Cistercian monks of Granja de Moreiruela, in Zamora, acquired this farm for their own production of food products, raising sheep and introduced improved water use and sustainable agroforestry. This purchase will be sponsored by Infanta Teresa Sanches from Portugal. They administered the farm and many others they owned in the municipalities of Bragança and Miranda do Douro for 200 years

  • XVI century - XVIII century

    Jesuits

    In 1571 the Jesuits obtained royal authorization to buy this property to private individuals for their own production of food products, raising sheep. It was also used as weekend residence for teachers of the University College of Jesus, from the city of Bragança. They build a granite fountain dating back to 1742. They administered this property for 200 years, until 1759, when they abandoned Portugal after persecution by the Marques of Pombal.
