Quinta da Revolta

Quinta da Revolta

Owner Moreira da Silva family

Quinta da Revolta is a quinta located in Campanha, in the city of Oporto. Quinta da Revolta was built between the 17th and 18th centuries and owes its curious name to a possible riot around that time. The quinta was the summer home of one of the great families of Oporto, the Viscounts of Balsemão, who in 1851 left the property to his brother, José Alvo Pinto de Sousa Coutinho de Balsemão, later to sell to the capitalist Porto José Duarte de Oliveira. In turn, in 1918, the Quinta was bought by Alfredo Moreira da Silva, grower, whose family still own it today.
