Casa Vilela

The Casa Vilela is a living house with a wine warehouse, a woodshed and a backyard, located at the center of Cheires.  The growth of viticulture in the eighteenth century, and the demarcations of the region, rose the interest of investors, thus leading to the construction of big houses for their seasonal or permanent residence.  This was the case of the Casa Vilela, which was built in the late eighteenth century by a family from Vila Real, during the absolutist regime. The house was later purchased by the family Vilela de Morais.
