Casa de Sam-Thiago

A place with history

Casa de Sam-Thiago is situated in Custóias- Oporto, near the baroque parochial church from the beginnings of the 18th century.

The name of Casa de Sam-Thiago comes from the place were it stands – the parish of Santiago de Custóias – whose first known documentary evidence dates from 1258. It was then referred as part of the “via veteris”, the ancient costal route of pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain.

Though there are pre-historic remains to prove that man lived in the area since the early ages, the conquest of the Iberian Peninsula by the Romans and their settlement in the region was the determining factor to the demographic and road development of Custóias.

 

A magnificent example of the 18th century Portuguese civil construction, Casa de Sam-Thiago is in the hands of the same family since 1850 and integrates the Portuguese Historic Houses Association. A two story building with an inside chapel, Casa de Sam-Thiago is in perfect state of preservation and maintains its original style.
