a Family tradition
Located in the outskirts of Guimarães, Casa de Sezim is a landmark in the city’s history and landscape. Also known as “Casa Grande” or “Paço de Sezim”, the building was classified as a monument of municipal interest in 1982.
It was passed down to the family of the current owners by a royal donation in 1376. According to a manuscript stored in the house’s archives, Maria Mendes Serrazinha donated the property to Afonso Martins, descendant from D. João de Freitas.
D. João de Freitas was a close companion of D. Afonso Henriques, the first King of Portugal. The first capital city of the country was Guimarães, and it is know was the cradle of our nation.
