The Casa de Rodas is situated only a kilometer from Monsoon, a farm of forty acres in the region of Albariño wine. The manor, a manor house typically of Minho, was built in 1566, having been burned in 1658, when the Castilian troops made â??â??a siege of Monsoon, this time leaving only one tower which is now part of a service area of the kitchen. Soon afterwards, the manor was rebuilt by Manuel Coelho Palhares, its owner and captain-general of Monsoon, and is this season's coat with his arms that adorns the ceiling of a room. 6 to 183, the lords of the house kept the male line of Pitas, Pita Ortigueira descended from John, knight nobleman from the Royal House of D. Afonso V. The chapel of the manor, built in place of a previous smaller, dates from 1768, was the authorization of the service given by the Archbishop of Braga, D. Gaspar, one of the boys Palhavã, son of D. JOHN V. When you enter the gate that gives access to the House of Wheels, two enormous ancient magnolias seem to protect the house and the visitor. An extensive lawn in front of the house gives you a look ordered and arranged, and the smell of burned wood coming out the chimney and mixes with the smell of wet earth makes you want to go quickly to take refuge in comfortable surroundings, Maria Luiza Tavora hosts guests with sympathy, since 1979. A stay at the House of Wheels will certainly lead the traveler to engage in memories of other times, to leave to abandon the time spent around the fireplace of the old kitchen and the many nice walks through the gardens and woods that surround this beautiful home.
